The IRS has increased its focus and efforts on high-income taxpayers who haven’t filed their tax returns. The potential for significant penalties, limited voluntary disclosure options, and possible criminal prosecution forces tax counsel and advisers to grasp a complete understanding of applicable tax rules and procedures when representing high-income taxpayers. The IRS issued IR-2020-34, which states the IRS “will step up efforts to visit high-income taxpayers who in prior years have failed to timely file one or more of their tax returns.” The IRS now uses sophisticated data analytics to identify high-income non-filers and tax preparers who promote false tax returns, as well as businesses with large amounts of unpaid employment taxes. Failure to file tax returns can have severe consequences.
