Late Tax Returns

Paramount Late Tax Filing Services

Missed the Tax Filing Deadline?

If you have missed the IRS tax filing deadline without filing an extension, you need to file as soon as possible before the IRS files for you. If you fail to file, the IRS can file a substitute return for you. Unlike a tax preparer, the IRS that won’t include credits or deductions that could help reduce the amount you owe or maximize your return.

Should I file for a tax extension

If you need more time to file your taxes you can file for an extension BEFORE the deadline, an extension is good for an additional 6 months and eliminates the failure-to-file penalty. An extension does not, however, give you an extension of time to pay taxes owed and you will be asked to estimate how much you're going to owe the IRS. The unpaid balance with accrue interest and penalties, however these penalties are far less than the ones for not filing at all.

Late filing fees if you owe taxes.

If you do not file taxes by the deadline, you may face a failure-to-file penalty. If you do not pay taxes owed by the deadline you may have to pay a failure-to-pay penalty which is generally less severe than a failure-to-file penalty as the IRS will work with if you are struggling to pay taxes owed on time. The failure-to-file penalty, however is usually 5 percent of the unpaid taxes for each month or part of a month that a tax return is late. That penalty starts accruing the day after the tax filing due date and will not exceed 25 percent of your unpaid taxes.

You will not have to pay a late-filing or late-payment penalty if you can show reasonable cause for not filing or paying on time but it is not guaranteed that the IRS will grant your request.

Late Fees if you are Getting a Refund

If you are owed a refund, there is no penalty for filing your tax return late, even without an extension as the penalty for filing late is a percentage of the tax owed. Just remember that you don’t get your tax return until you file.

Excellent. I came in with messy records and they were patient and helpful in getting our books cleaned-up. They introduced me to steps I needed to take to reduce my tax bill, keep better records, and avoid audits.

Because we’re CPAs and they're not™

Many people do not know how a CPA differs from a bookkeeper or tax preparer. The CPA designation is one of the most widely recognized and highly trusted professional designations in the business world. CPAs are distinguished from other finance professionals by stringent qualification and licensing requirements. Paramount CPAs have worked hard to obtain their CPA designation, and are committed to working even harder to deliver the value that that designation conveys. In fact, our goal is to be the No. 1 Accounting Firm firm across the United States. So when you ask yourself, "Where can I find Accounting Firm services near me?"... think no further than Paramount
