Back Taxes

The HTML to link to this page
 

Back taxes are taxes owed for years prior to the current tax year. Back taxes are generally considered past due taxes. Because back taxes are generally treated as late, interest and penalties are often attached and must be paid at the same time that the back taxes are brought up-to-date. Back taxes may be owed by individuals as well as businesses and corporations. If an individual is unable to pay all back taxes due at once, payment terms can often be arranged, although penalties and interest may continue to accrue until all of the back taxes are brought current. Under certain conditions the government may seize property and/or assets or place liens on property to satisfy back taxes, or, in extreme cases, an individual may face prison time for failure to pay back taxes.
