Dealing with the Mississippi Department of Revenue or the IRS can be a massive headache. Some tax issues can result in costly fines and extreme collections efforts, while other tax issues can result in jail time. The consequences of a filing mistake, delinquent payment or tax evasion are greater than you realize. Don’t make your tax problems worse, get a tax expert’s assistance with whatever tax issue you have.
Filing Back Taxes
One of the most common problems for businesses and individual taxpayers is a failure to file. If you failed to file federal or state taxes for one or more years, both federal and state agencies would give you a little leeway, but you will eventually need to handle the issue or face the consequences. The IRS might let you get away without filing for several years without charging you with tax evasion, but you will be penalized. Your failure to file could result in the following actions:
Seize your bank accounts
Seize property of value
Garnish your wages
