Need help with San Diego unfiled tax returns? We can help!
The recently announced IRS Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2018-2022 is focusing on six areas. The area that you as a non-filer with San Diego unfiled tax returns need to be aware of is the area dealing with noncompliance. If you have a filing requirement for any tax year and you have not filed, you are considered noncompliant.
“I have not filed a tax return in years and the IRS or CAFTB has not contacted me yet. Why should I file now?”
Failure to pay taxes or file a return is itself a crime. However, the IRS and CAFTB would rather work with you and reach a settlement before seeking criminal charges. But remember, the more blatantly fraudulent your behavior has been, the more likely the IRS or CAFTB is to prosecute you. For example, you would likely be prosecuted for failing to file returns year after year, despite repeated contacts by the IRS or CAFTB.
The fact that you are reading this more than likely means that you have already been contacted by the IRS or the CAFTB, or both. The CAFTB is really aggressive these days, and the IRS is about to become more aggressive as well. The Republicans have finally come to their senses and are about to increase funding for the IRS who will definitely be stepping up pursuing non-filers. The free pass for Californians with San Diego unfiled tax returns is coming to an end.
“What happens if I am contacted by the IRS or CAFTB and ignore them?”
That would be a terrible idea. They will first do a replacement return for you that will definitely not be in your best interests. If you have a balance due, they can place a tax lien on your property, garnish your wages (a good way to possibly lose your job) or levy your bank accounts. Be aware that any one of these actions will destroy your credit.
“Ok. I’m ready to become compliant. What do I do now?”
