Self-Employed / 1099 Misfiling
Many Americans find that they have to supplement their income with 1099 types of employment. Typically, the taxpayer, unaccustomed to the 1040-ES form and the various procedures associated with self-employed filing, will make a mistake and incur a penalty.
Filing as self-employed is considerably more complicated and involved than most other forms of filing. The discrepancy exists because self-employed individuals generally are required to file an annual return and pay estimated tax quarterly.
How Self-Employed Taxpayers Must File
It is the legal obligation for those classified as self-employed to file annual returns and pay estimated taxes quarterly. The quarterly payment of estimated taxes can cause most mistakes for filers.
In addition to your income tax, you must pay an SE (self-employed) tax. The SE tax covers Medicare and Social Security – typically withheld from regular wages.
If you are filing as self-employed for the first time, and you haven’t yet made any money from your business – you must give an estimation of how much you expect to earn from the upcoming year.
Unfiled and Misfiled Consequences
Most Americans don’t realize how seriously the IRS takes tax filing mistakes, let alone how they treat unfiled taxes.
The consequences for not filing your tax returns can be severe and place the delinquent taxpayer in even more trouble.
Failure to file your taxes is considered a crime.
Refusal to file your taxes can be considered a type of tax evasion.
While the IRS may not take immediate action against delinquent taxpayers, it is best not to test your luck. The most common consequences for not filing your taxes include delayed tax refunds and late penalties. Long-term punishments include limited loan access, seizure of assets, and fines.
Bottom line, file your taxes as early as possible. Filing months before the deadline can give you time to pay off your taxes or more time to file for an extension.
