Not paying your taxes is an easy mistake to make. Ignorance or forgetfulness are the common culprits. The more you put off your IRS debt responsibilities, the worse the problem can get. No matter how innocent the reason for neglecting your IRS tax debt is, the consequences can be serious. In fact, in some cases, back taxes could even land you in jail! While seeking professional help is the best approach when you owe back taxes, you too must be aware of the basics. That is precisely what we cover in this blog post. Let’s start with some basics.

Can an IRS tax debt really put you behind bars?

If you haven’t been keeping a track of your IRS tax debt, you are probably worrying about the consequences that could come your way. Are you at risk of prosecution? Well, it all depends on your individual situation. Owing taxes to the IRS doesn’t necessarily mean you could go to jail. But in some cases, it could be a real possibility.

The IRS is constantly seeking out tax offenders and isn’t afraid to serve penalties according to the law. Everyone is under the scope of their lens. In fact, even the famous have to deal with the consequences of tax evasion. One of the more recent popular cases was that of reality TV star Michael Sorrentino, facing prison time for tax evasion and fraud.

Getting a professional evaluation of your individual IRS tax debt case is the best way to get an idea of what you are dealing with. But for the most part, as long as you have been transparent about your finances, filing your tax returns and show no sign of trying to purposely avoid payment, jail is probably not something you should be worrying about.

If, however, you have knowingly done anything fraudulent or illegal in order to neglect tax payment or attempted to deceive the IRS in any way, you can be prosecuted and sentenced with jail time. These types of cases are considered tax evasion or fraud, which are prosecutable crimes. Actions such as failing to file your returns or even helping someone else to illegally avoid tax payment can be considered fraud or evasion and land you behind bars.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
