Tax penalties and interest add up fast. If you file a return with a balance due two years or longer after the original filing due date (including extensions), the applicable penalties and interest can be as much as 40% of the tax!
Not being able to full pay the taxes owed is the number 1 reason given by most taxpayers for not filing their tax returns on time. Ironically, failure to file your return by the due date (original or extended) triggers a 25% penalty, while the penalty for paying late is only one-half of a percent (0.5%).
The false belief that you are better off not filing a return until you can full pay your taxes, perpetuates a repititious cycle of non-filing. Before you know it you are several years in arrears, and owe thousands of dollars in penalties and interest on top of the unpaid tax.
