What is delinquent tax return?
If you have failed to file your tax return, the IRS may begin its collection action against you.
Usually, the IRS requires that you file delinquent (late) tax returns for the past six years.
Failing to file tax returns can create serious problems. It can result in the IRS beginning its collection enforcement against you (e.g., levy against your wages, bank account and other assets). It can also result in a criminal offense.
After compliance is secured, some of my clients receive refunds once their returns are filed and accepted by the IRS. We assist others in addressing balance-due returns with remedies such as installment payments and offers in compromise.
If you have unfilled returns, or received a notice from the IRS or a state tax agency asking for unfilled returns, you may need assistance from experienced CPA who will protect your rights and represent your interests.
