I have no idea. I always get ours done as soon as possible so I don't forget about them and get us unto trouble. I hope someone can answer this for you.

if you don't file on time you get hit with tons of penalties and late fees and it will cost you even more.  If you owe more than you can pay at one time, get a payment plan in place. Also, make sure you get more taken out so you don't wind up owing next year (hopefully).

Some people seem to do that without getting noticed but idk how that would work... I never had to owe but next year I know we will ._. I rather play it safe and do them the time they're due on

Thank you. I know that at 3 years of not filing is when they will start looking into getting you in trouble. We arent trying not to pay...we just dont have the few thousand we need and the last time we got on a payment plan it took us forever to get it paid off because of the interest. So we will not be doing a payment plan again.

We got on a payment plan 2 years ago and it screwed us up. We will never do that again. I would rather pay what is owed plus fees with my return next year at once than get on a plan that will accumulate interest and screw us even more.

My df was self employed for a year and because of me losing my job, we couldn't afford to pay that year. We filed the following year. He paid 10% penalties and the back money that was owed. He owed $6000 and our penalties were an additional $600.

We would rather wait for next years return (my return) to cover what is owed rather than getting on a payment plan that will screw us over more.

Makes sense. I would rather pay the penalties than the interest of being on a payment plan. Thank you.
