Believe it or not, lots of people worry about the possible consequences of not paying taxes, and this regularly happens because people forget to pay them on time. Most of them think about the possibility of going to jail due to a couple of months of unpaid taxes, but let me assure you that going to jail for not paying taxes is pretty rare, and shouldn’t be a source of concern.
Still, the IRS, also known as the Internal Revenue Service, can place some penalties depending on the faults you may have committed and your circumstances. Even so, it’s not like you can’t go to jail, it’s just that the IRS saves that penalty for the most extreme case-scenarios, like the crime of evading taxes and fraud.
