This video features David Cohen, a Criminal Law attorney based in New York.
What should you do if you failed to file or pay taxes for a year or many years? We're asking New York City lawyer David Cohen for this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.
You should immediately contact an accountant, you can request an extension of the filing date, you can set up a payment plan with the IRS, or you can contact a criminal lawyer at CFP Law. We help people with those type of issues all the time, but don't continue that behavior, it will catch up to you, and the penalties are always worse, the IRS will work with you to set up a payment plan, and ultimately, any prosecutor who has reason to review will look upon you favorably if you've contacted the IRS and attempted to make settlement.
