Others simply do not file their taxes because of anti-tax sentiments. Whatever the reason there are some things that must always be considered.

What can happen if I don’t file my tax returns?
The IRS has the right to prosecute you for failing to file your taxes. That’s right, failing to file your taxes may land you in court and even worse in jail. You should file all of your tax returns that are due.
Can I be prosecuted for tax evasion?
There is a big difference between a tax evader and someone who failed to file their taxes. An evader simply has no interest in paying their taxes or intentionally misleads the IRS by failing to file their taxes. But a word of caution: Not filing your taxes DOES NOT make you immune to prosecution!
