Things to consider below – but read all the way through.  It is best to understand the entirety of the issue and then plan steps to quickly and easily resolve them.

Penalties for Late Filing

April 15th is the annual tax filing date for taxpayers to file their federal income tax return forms or pay any taxes that may be due. Filing your federal income tax returns late or failing to pay taxes owed for your tax return on a timely basis could result in serious consequences.

According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax law, penalties for filing or paying late could include:

  • Penalty fees for failure to file or pay – penalties for failure to file are generally more costly than penalties for failure to pay (so it is best to at least file even if you cannot pay your taxes)

  • The penalty for filing late is typically 5% of the unpaid taxes for each month that a return is late

  • Penalties begin to accrue the day after a tax return file is due

  • If you do not pay your taxes by April 15th, you will face a failure-to-pay penalty at 0.5% of your unpaid taxes

  • If you file your tax return more than 60 days after the due date, the minimum penalty could either be $135 or 100% of the unpaid tax, whichever is smaller

If it is likely that you will be late filing or late paying for your tax return, it is wise that you consult with a tax accountant locally in San Diego so the process can go smoothly. A professional tax advisor can help notify the IRS if you need an extension of time to file or pay your tax return. This may help to minimize or avoid penalties and interest.  This can be a simple and economical step to take.
