What if I have not filed taxes in a long time?
There are no consequences for not filing a tax return during the years you were not required to file. Your filing requirement is typically determined by income, filing status, and age. If you were required to file a return in a previous year and now file a current tax return, the IRS may contact you with information about a skipped filing year. You can use this IRS tool to determine if you needed to file or could benefit from filing a current or previous tax return.
