What to Do if You Haven't Filed Your Tax Return

Tax Topic 153
rule
You may not have filed your federal income tax return for this year or previous years. Regardless of your reason for not filing a required return, file your tax return as soon as possible. If you need help, check our website, IRS.gov. We have many tools and resources available, such as the Interactive Tax Assistant (ITA), FAQs, and Tax Trails.
If you are not sure you are required to file a return, visit Do I Need to File a Tax Return or refer to Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax for Individuals. If you are required to file a return, but you cannot pay all of the tax due on your return, the IRS may be able to help you establish a payment agreement. For additional information on tax payment options, refer to Tax Topic 202.
For answers to your tax questions, information about payment arrangements, or any other tax-related inquiries, visit IRS.gov.
