Past Due Tax Returns
If you have gotten into a situation whereby you have past unfiled tax returns, you are in a precarious position. This can happen for a number of reasons, such as being seriously ill, having disorderly records, or being unable to pay your tax liability. Failing to file by the due date or your extended due date is, however, a criminal offense. A Miami tax lawyer should be consulted if you are faced with this problem.
At the Law Office of A. Antonio Tomas, P.A., we understand that you may feel trapped and afraid to address the situation for fear of coming to the attention of the IRS. You should know that it is almost a surety that the IRS will not pursue criminal prosecution against you if you voluntarily file your returns before being caught. They may choose to do so in cases which will gain publicity and serve as a warning to other taxpayers, such as those involving celebrities or politicians. Generally, however, the only disadvantage to filing overdue tax returns results in having to pay the interest and penalties you have incurred for non-payment. As these will continue to accrue until the matter is settled, there is no benefit to delaying the filing of your returns any longer. If you don't expect to be able to pay the amount owed, Attorney Tomas can also review your case for potential solutions to this issue.
