Don’t go to income tax services. Over 90% of people who prepare returns and give advice
Well Don’t File Them
Don’t follow IRS instructions.
Don’t take any free advice someone gave you.
Here is the Problem with doing that
While you are filing your returns your bank account or paycheck may be levied.
I’ve seen it happen many times over my 35 years of representing taxpayers.
Filling back taxes does not stop IRS collections, and may cause a costly audit
Don’t go to income tax services. Over 90% of people who prepare returns and give adviceare not really qualified. National tax preparation companies and most local, do not have the experience needed to understand how they cause returns to be audited. People come to me to clean up poorly prepared returns.
Taxpayers Who Have Unfiled Tax Returns
It’s very important to file and pay your taxes a timely manner. If you don’t, you will have to deal with the various attempts the IRS makes to get you to file, to file for you and to collect the money due. You will also have to pay penalties and interest on any underpayments of tax. Not filing returns will put you in a non-filing status. After several requests, the Internal Revenue Service will attempt to summons information from you and any of your banks they have on record, so they can prepare a return for you. They may choose to bypass this step and directly file a return for you based on the information they already have.
How Many Years Back Must I file My Delinquent Returns?
Usually you will have to file the previous six (6) years, plus the current year. Beyond that, you may be off the hook, depending on what years the IRS will request. We usually wait for any request before we prepare returns going back further then six (6) years, if our client wants to assume that risk. However, it is truly a great feeling to know that you have obtained back tax help, filed all missing years, and no longer have to worry about being asked to file any more years of delinquent tax returns. Often the amount of money you will owe helps in the decision to file those “extra” back years. We are available for IRS non-filed tax help.
IRS Actions When You Don’t File or Don’t Report Your Income
The IRS doesn’t care what your reason is for not filing or owing back taxes. They have improved their programs for matching 3rd party payer records with individuals and businesses who have not reported that particular income source. It’s better to resolve your unfiled returns before the IRS comes after you.
By taking action now, you will have more time to file. After we pull the records the IRS has on you, you won’t be defending why you didn’t include income on your return. Mostly, you will probably avoid getting audited.
When the IRS finds that the income is not reported on your return, or discovers a return is not filed, they will start sending out notices. The notices will either request that you file or charge you with additional taxes.
If you ignore the letters, or do not resolve the matter to the IRS’s satisfaction, they may turn your case over to a collection officer who may call or visit you. I’ve never had a taxpayer tell me that the visit was a pleasant experience!
It May Take Years To Discover Unfiled Returns
Sometimes it takes several years before the IRS notifies you that you did not file your return. This is not the situation you want. After several years pass, you may have lost vital records and have forgotten much about your financial situation. The interest and penalties for filing and paying late may be insurmountable!
Please take action now to resolve any delinquent returns issue you have. This will minimize any non-filer assistance from a CPA or attorney you will need to help solve you past due returns
Tax Liabilities may have already been assessed
So even when you file, and even when someone at the IRS tells you to file and gives you a date to get them in, you may still get a bank or wage levy. The odds are not in your favor of having a smooth experience, considering returns not prepared to avoid an audit, imminent collection action, and being in the dark about what the IRS can and will do to you.

We get a power of attorney on file with the IRS’s CAF (Central Authorization File) Unit. I doing it this way, all employees of the IRS should contact us before they contact you.
We pull transcripts, from our computer, of the IRS record of account for several of the past years. This way we see what the IRS has on you.
We pull wage and income records to see what income was reported to them.
We decide when it’s appropriate to contact the IRS and ask for a deadline and their agreement not to take collection action prior to the deadline.
We prepare your returns, or allow you to prepare them, using the information we pull from the IRS records.
Once the returns are filed by the deadline, we will work out your best solution, whether a payment plan or an offer in compromise. Maybe you just need a few months to pay in full.
We will call the IRS automatic collections or customer service to obtain the status of each unfiled year. They will give us specific mailing instructions for each year.
If a revenue officer is assigned your case, they will collect the returns and forward them to the service for processing. You lose the benefit of filing them separately, but sometimes I can have you file separately, without giving them to the Revenue Officer.
