Minnesota: What to do if you have years of unfiled Tax Returns?
Updated: Aug 23
I represent taxpayers in the twin cities in Minnesota and all the 50 States in the United State before all administrative levels—examination, collection, and appeals—of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
The IRS has identified more than 7 Million taxpayers who have failed to file returns. Recently, the IRS have gathered more information about non-filers as a result of non-filing taxpayers requesting the stimulus check from the government.
It is worth noting that the willful failure to file a tax return is a federal tax crime under the Internal Revenue Code’s Section 7203.
Taxpayers who have years of unfiled taxes should consider filing the taxes as soon as possible. If the failure to file the required tax return is due to inability to pay the tax liability. The taxpayer should consider filing those returns and begin working on a tax resolution to resolve the back-tax balance.
The tax resolution options are Installment Agreement, Offer -in- Compromise (‘OIC”), or could qualify for Currently not Collectable Status.
If the taxpayer’s failure to file was intentional or other reasons such as cash payments to undocumented workers, then the way to resolve the issue and avoid a criminal tax referral is by utilizing the IRS’s Voluntary Disclosure Program. By doing a voluntary disclosure the taxpayer can disclose the issue without fear of a criminal tax referral.
