Past-due (delinquent) taxes create a stressful situation for taxpayers who fall behind or file late. Liens, wage garnishment, and fines only increase anxiety for those behind on their taxes. To make matters worse, there is a question of an even bigger punishment for delinquent taxes: Can you go to jail for falling behind on taxes?
The question is more complicated than a simple yes or no. Many factors play into decisions the IRS makes regarding criminal charges for tax issues.
1.) Why the IRS can file criminal charges against you
2.) How long does the IRS have to make their case against you?
3.) What other penalties can the IRS impose for delinquent taxes
Yes, You Can Go To Jail
