Is It Against the Law to Not File Taxes?

Haven’t filed your tax return yet? If not, sooner or later, the IRS catches up with you. More importantly, not filing your tax return will end up costing you more. Filing your returns on time is the only way to avoid tax-related nightmares.

Do I have to file taxes?

Not everyone is required to file taxes annually. Whether you need to file depends on factors like your income level and filing status. Generally, if your income falls below the standard deduction for your filing status, you may not need to file. However, if you’re eligible for a tax refund, you still need to file a return to claim it.

What are the Consequences of Not Filing Your Taxes?

First and foremost, it’s illegal to ignore your any tax-related financial responsibilities. The IRS can penalize you for both not filing and not paying taxes owed

The IRS doesn’t take legal action against every non-compliant taxpayer due to the sheer volume of individuals who neglect to file their taxes annually. However, if you think you can disappear among millions, you’re wrong. In the end, the IRS will prioritize your case and employ various collection methods to recover any outstanding tax debt. So no matter what, there is no escape from the IRS. 

Therefore, a late payment penalty will be imposed on the amount you owe each month you don’t file. And, if you haven’t filed your taxes for years, the IRS may suddenly seize your assets. You may even be accused of tax evasion and face prison time. Additionally, failing to file within the designated time frame can result in the loss of potential refunds.

Filing an Extension
