You should begin by determining when was the last time you filed a return.Then sort your records by year so the tax returns can be prepared.The IRS can go back 7 years. You, on the other hand, will be obligated for any tax due during those same 7 years but will only be eligible to receive refunds for the most recent 3 years.
Software is available to prepare the back returns from companies such as TurboTax and Tax Act. The software from each offers a Q&A approach which makes some returns quite simple. You will not be able to file electronically.
