Can you still file taxes for the year you havent filed? I havent filed since 2004.
You can and should file all back taxes as soon as possible. If it turns out that you owe the government, they are charging interest on the outstanding amount since the day of owing. The longer you wait, the more interest you may have to pay on anything you might owe.
You can, You absolutely need to use an attorney that specializes in defending people against the IRS though. Good luck.
I picked up a client this week that hasn't file since 1994.
You have three years to file if you want your refund. After three years you lose the refund, but still must file. If you owe money, you owe until 10 years after the return is filed. In other words, once you file, the IRS has 10 years to swing at you to collect a balance due before it goes out of stat. You only have three years to swing for your money.
Now go file those back returns. And send the returns close to falling out of stat certified.
Oh, and unless there is fraud involved, forget the attorney. Get a tax pro; a CPA or enrolled agent is more than fine.

I'll be happy to answer them. I have practiced in the tax field for 27 years and enjoy helping others resolve tax issues. If the question requires a large answer I will create a hub page.

How do you file your taxes?Do you do them yourself? Use a software like Turbo Tax? Or do you take them to a professional? I heard that a professional can help you maximize your return. What are your experiences?
