  • The IRS charges penalties, and intrest. It is like at usary rates. If your boyfriend has to take out a small loan at the local bank, believe me it would be cheaper to pay back the bank than the IRS. Hey good luck!!!!

  • Read the following:

    "There is a penalty for late filing of 5% of the tax not paid by the due date for each month, or part of a month, that your return is late. Generally, the maximum penalty is 25%. But if your return is more than 60 days late, the minimum penalty is $100 or the balance of the tax due on your return, whichever is smaller."
