The IRS Would Love to Take Care of Your Unfiled Tax Returns For You…
Does This Sound Like a Good Plan?

Tax interest and penalties add up lightning fast. If you didn’t file a tax return because you didn’t have the money to pay what was owed, or you filed but simply didn’t pay, you’ve gotten yourself into quite a predicament. And the more you let this situation go, the more likely you are going to pay for it and pay for it big.

NOT filing your tax returns is a criminal offense.

Punishment for not filing tax returns can be as severe as one year jail time for every year your taxes go unfiled. Don’t think you can continue to get away with it. As the computer system at the IRS gets more complex and sophisticated, the chances of you getting flagged and caught increase exponentially.

But here’s what you can do…

First, let us help you comply with the law. By taking the initiative and filing your tax returns, you can still take advantage of the deductions and allowances due to you. Yes, you are still going to owe taxes, and likely penalties and interest, as well, but if you wait for the IRS to take care of your problem for you, they are going to do so in the best interest of the government with little thought or interest in your bottom line.

By voluntarily filing all delinquent returns, you will save yourself further problems, and we can help you do that.

Once your returns are current, we can look at your total owed and help you create a plan of action to remedy the situation.
