Is it really a serious matter if you have failed to file a tax return?

Yes, it could be very serious. The IRS has identified taxpayers who fail to file income tax returns and effectively stop paying income tax as a serious threat to tax administration and the American economy. The IRS's role in combating the area of nonfiling is that of outreach, education and enforcement of the tax laws. Enforcement may touch you if you have not filed one or more tax returns. If you have received a notice of a tax audit, this is a sign you must take action sooner rather than later.

When might nonfiling of tax returns trigger a criminal investigation by the IRS?

Some taxpayers will take immediate steps to correct the problem if the IRS notifies them of an audit having to do with nonfiling of tax returns. However, it is understood that there are those who will not respond to outreach efforts and simply refuse to comply with the law. It is to those individuals who deliberately fail to comply with their obligation to file required tax returns and pay any taxes due and owing that IRS Criminal Investigation devotes its investigative resources. In the most egregious cases, criminal prosecution is recommended to the United States Attorney's office.

I haven't filed past tax returns, but I have not received any notification about this from the IRS. Should I be concerned?

If you have not filed past returns, you need professional help. To avoid criminal charges and or to minimize civil charges, it is important to file your tax returns even if they are late or you cannot pay the taxes owed.
