Hi, and welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to help you today
How are you today?
im ok and you
The first thing you will need to do is file your taxes. I would recommend finding a professional in your area who can file all 10 years for you and that will charge you one fee for it all
ok is this going to be a really expensive thing and will the government always charge penalties even if i didn't owe any taxes for those years and how far back will they go
If you don't owe taxes, then there is no penalty. They go as far back as you have not paid taxes. There is no statute of limitations if you have not filed. They only go back up to 6 years if you file
will they work with me or do they set an amount and i will have to pay it even if i need lower payments
Oh yes they will definitely work with you and set you up payment plans that you can afford
if my employer reports my taxes will they start checking on me
Well, eventually the IRS will see you aren't filing taxes. If your employer is reporting your taxes and they calculate you are due a refund, they probably won't say anything
But if you're due refunds you only get them for three years. Anything older than three years old is lost forever
ok thank you very much you have been very helpful
I'm so glad I could help you. But don't worry - there's nothing to worry about if you're getting it lined out
So don't lose sleep. Take care of it, but don't let it worry you
Anything else I can help you with tonight?
