As a former IRS agent and teaching instructor with the IRS, it is important for taxpayers to know that IRS has a policy statement regarding the number of tax returns needed to satisfy IRS in cases where taxpayers have not filed for years.

The latest numbers published by the Internal Revenue Service shows that between five and 10 million taxpayers, businesses and corporations do not file their annual tax returns time.

For many taxpayers after the first year of nonfiling and noncompliance the snowball picks up steam going down the hill it becomes larger and larger and taxpayers hope they never get caught yet a fear still lives in the pit of their stomach during tax time.

The great blessing is that IRS does not require you to remember the year of your last filing nor are they gonna require 10, 20 or 30 years in some cases of filing back tax returns.

The Internal Revenue Service wants taxpayers back in the system and the IRS policy statement of 5- 133 will require that the taxpayer file their last six years.

The Internal Revenue Service realizes that asking taxpayers for more years is fruitless. It is far better to get them back in the system back in compliance because at the end of the day it helps both the taxpayer and IRS.

What many people do not realize by not filing many more back years they lose Social Security benefits that would’ve been accumulating.

As people get older they realized they probably should-be filed all their tax returns to get the maximum benefits.

To apply for Social Security to receive it you must have worked a total of 40 quarter hours.

The other sad thing is that many cases these people were W-2 wage earners, having enough or sufficient withholding taken out that they would’ve had refunds.

The statute of limitation on a tax refund is three years.

If you owe money how will  IRS proceed?

 

If you’re going to owe money to the Internal Revenue Service IRS will require a financial statement that will need to be documented and sent to them for review.

I RS will require that financial statement be documented. Some of the information that will need to be included are bank statements, pay stubs, and copies of current monthly expenses.

After review of that financial statement there are generally three types of closing methods IRS will use to close your outstanding  tax balance.

Number one. They can determine that you are currently uncollectible at this time and place you in a hardship file that will be in the system for one or two years and will be reviewed at a later time.

Number two.

They can place you into a payment agreement or a monthly plan in which you will make designated payments agreed by you and the IRS.

Number three.

You may be eligible to settle your tax debt for pennies on the dollar through the offer in compromise program.

When you call us we will review your different options and get you back in the system worry free without having a tremendous financial impact on your life

 

If you have not filed in many years how many back years do you have to file to satisfy the IRS

Many taxpayers cases regarding not filing are not criminal in nature. They are civil cases only.

With that in mind, major dollar amount cases, the laundering of money or particularly crimes of fraud, the Internal Revenue Service can or may work a case a different way.

So what’s the next step if you decide to file back tax returns.

Most taxpayers do not have the records to file back tax returns.

For those who can simply go ahead and prepare the returns and send them in all at one time to the Internal Revenue Service. Do not be afraid to send all the tax returns and the IRS in the same envelope.

They are going to get there sooner or later and you’re not going to fool anybody as IRS has very copious records of everyone’s Social Security number, filing statuses, and their income for the past six years.

The Internal Revenue Service can provide wage and income transcripts for those who have lost records to help you reconstruct your tax returns.

By simply asking IRS for a tax transcript, they will provide for you the records you need as far as income to prepare your return. As far the expense that will be applied against your income you’re pretty much be on you.

However reconstructive standards can be used by tax professionals who know the system and can help you out in these matters.

 

Policy Statement 5-133

 

1. Delinquent returns—enforcement of filing requirements

2. Taxpayers failing to file tax returns due will be requested to prepare and file all such returns except in instances where there is an indication that the taxpayer’s failure to file the required return or returns was willful or if there is any other indication of fraud.

All delinquent returns submitted by a taxpayer, whether upon his/her own initiative or at the request of a Service representative, will be accepted. However, if indications of willfulness or fraud exist, the special procedures for handling such returns must be followed.

3. Where it is determined that required returns have not been filed, the extent to which compliance for prior years will be enforced will be determined by reference to factors ensuring compliance and evenhanded administration of staffing and other Service resources.

4. Factors to be taken into account include, but are not limited to: prior history of noncompliance, existence of income from illegal sources, effect upon voluntary compliance, anticipated revenue, and collectibility, in relation to the time and effort required to determine tax due.

Consideration will also be given any special circumstances existing in the case of a particular taxpayer, class of taxpayer, or industry, or which may be peculiar to the class of tax involved.

5. Normally, application of the above criteria will result in enforcement of delinquency procedures for not more than six (6) years.

Enforcement beyond such period will not be undertaken without prior managerial approval. Also, if delinquency procedures are not to be enforced for the full six-year period of delinquency, prior managerial approval mus
t be secured.

As a note to number five, IRS must have an extraordinary reason to want to go back prior than six years.

On some occasion the agent may find there are numerous assets to collect back taxes by filing more years. This is very rare. but they happened on many cases where there are badges of fraud.

important information:

if you do not file your back tax returns the Internal Revenue Service can file for you under 6020 B of the Internal Revenue Code. IRS will make sure with this filing you pay the most amount of taxes allowed by law.
