Did you fail to file taxes one year? Do you owe money to the IRS? If you have a tax debt or other tax-related issues, you should get legal advice because you are facing steep financial penalties and could have your property, your car or your bank account seized. You don’t want any of those things to plague you.
Very few Americans are eager to pay their taxes; some people forget to file or simply refuse to file. Or, the make a big mistake on their returns and end up owing the IRS thousands of dollars. If you owe the IRS money or you the Maine Department of Revenue, the worst thing to do is to ignore the problem. It may take tax agents awhile ( a year or two) to discover you didn’t file or failed to pay, but when they do, your will have plenty of headaches to deal with, and financial penalties will be exorbitant.
Before a federal or state agency moves to collect on unpaid taxes, they will send a notice which gives you several weeks to respond. Pay attention to the notice.
Make sure you read the notice thoroughly. Tax agents make mistakes so that you could have received a notice in error. You could have a made a simple mistake on one of your forms, and all you need to do is to re-submit the form. If the issue is complicated, you will need the help of a tax attorney.
