We represent many taxpayers who have not filed federal and/or state tax returns for many years. Sometimes there are unusual or even catastrophic events that occur in one's life. For many reasons, those events can cause persons not to file tax returns. By not filing in any given year, that can exasperate the anxiety and pressure an individual may be experiencing. Sometimes tax returns are not filed in subsequent years, after a year is missed, because of the very real concern that by filing for tax returns, after tax returns have not been filed for a year or more, that may lead to the discovery and consequences associated with tax returns not being previously filed. All the while, taxes, penalties and interest continue to accrue.
