What happens if you don’t pay your taxes?

Every year, people fail to file a tax return in a timely manner. There are many reasons for this, some personal and some financial.))

Regardless of your situation, you must realize the importance of filing your tax return on time. Even if you are unable to pay any additional money that you owe, it's best to show the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that you are not trying to hide.

Tax evasion is a serious crime that has serious consequences. Fortunately, the IRS is not in the business of prosecuting a person for making a simple mistake.

The IRS is more than willing to work with you to clear up your situation, ensuring that you don't face criminal charges. If you continue to avoid paying your taxes, there is the chance that you could face criminal charges.

Remember this: In order for a conviction to occur, the IRS does not have to prove exactly how much you owe. They simply need to detect fraud or evasion.

If you receive any type of notice from the IRS, it would be in your best interest to fully understand what it says and the steps you need to take in the immediate future. Avoiding these letters and hoping the IRS goes away is a mistake you don't want to make.

The IRS doesn't want to file criminal charges if you neglect to pay your taxes, but they may have no choice if you don't take the right approach. If you find yourself in this position, don't wait another day to learn more about your legal rights and the best type of defense strategy.
