If You File or Pay Late

If you don’t file a required tax return by the due date, the IRS will charge you a 5% per month penalty for failing to file. If you owe taxes on the return, the IRS will also charge a 0.5% per month failure to pay penalty. Interest will also accrue on any unpaid balance from the day the return was due until the date you pay the tax in full.

Potential advantages of filing prior year taxes

Even if you aren’t required to file, you still might want to file a prior year tax return even if it’s late. This way, you can get a refund of any income tax withholding or refundable credits (going back up to three years).

If you have a business, you may also be able to have a net-operating-loss carryover if business deductions exceed income for the year. Additionally, if you owe self-employment tax for prior years and you file and pay, the IRS will report that amount paid to the Social Security Administration. If you don’t pay you won’t get credit for the unpaid amounts if you later file for Social Security benefits.
