Penalties for Failing to File Income Taxes

When an individual fails to file their taxes by the required deadline, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will impose financial penalties for every month until the consumer files his or her taxes. The late filing penalty can be up to 25% percent of the person's taxes. Many people fear that if they missed the deadline to file taxes, they will end up in jail.

While it is true that a federal charge of tax evasion can lead to a $10,000 fine and up to one year in jail, the reality is that the IRS would much rather you pay your taxes than endure a trial and have you convicted. Therefore, criminal measures are often the very last resort for the IRS when dealing with someone who has fallen behind on filing their tax return.
