Wishing it Would All Go Away Doesn’t Work With the IRS

Remember the Calgon commercials of the 1970s and 1980s? Those of you who were around that is…

A harried woman juggling kids, housework, jobs, and life, in general, gets fed up and utters the magic phrase:

“Calgon, take me away!”

Immediately, she is whisked away to a luxurious bubble bath, where all her cares appear to melt away.

Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

It resonated with its target audience and is still one of the most iconic commercials of all time.

The sentiment is just as true today as it was back then.

Life Gets Overwhelming… and We Just Want It to All Go Away!

With taxes though, that’s really not a good strategy.

As much of a pain in the rear as they can be, we need to address them.

Still, some people choose to ignore these tax deadlines and notices.

They are hoping to wake up in a beautiful bubble bath, perhaps?

What Happens if You Ignore Your Taxes?

Nothing would happen… at first.

Let’s say you don’t file your taxes on April 15th (or 17th, or whatever the deadline happens to be).
You aren’t likely to have a SWAT team show up at your door, ready to take you down, the very next day.

It may take a while for the IRS to realize you are a non-filer.

In fact, some people think that if they don’t file their tax return and nothing happens for 10 years, they are magically off the hook.

They may have heard that the IRS has only 10 years to collect (and that’s a long time, by the way)! Yes, that’s true.

But the clock doesn’t start ticking until a return is filed.

Here’s How You Can Rack Up a Huge Tax Bill without Even Knowing It

If you don’t file a tax return yourself, the IRS is able to create one for you, known as a Substitute for Return (SFR).

Let’s say you live under a rock (or in a large bubble bath, albeit with very wrinkly skin by this point) for 15 years without filing a return. One day the IRS finally wakes up to this and files SFRs for you, for each of those 15 years.

Guess what?

Any tax you owe will be subject to whopping interest and penalties as well.
