Delinquent taxes

By Terry Savage on November 20, 2023 | Taxes & Economy

I have a friend who is delinquent on her taxes.(By several years) Can you recommend a tax service who can review her information? She is leery of the ones advertising on tv and radio. Thanks

I assume you are talking about Federal income taxes? Did she earn enough to have an obligation to file — yet didn’t do so?
I think she needs a very sophisticated and qualified tax person to help her. So I would search for an “enrolled agent” and at least have one meeting. They are NOT obligated to report her noncompliance!

But that may not be necessary depending on the amount of taxes owed. Perhaps just a CPA can do the job — IF she has kept records of her income during the years she did not file.

She should start by reading this from HR Block:
