Owing taxes is not a crime, but his willfully not filing tax return is
San Francisco, CA - It is not a crime to owe money to the IRS. If Wesley Snipes had filed his tax returns but couldn't pay he would not be going prison. Willfully not filing is where it gets serious. This law has been around for years, but its now aggressively being enforced by the IRS and state. The IRS is after the regular taxpayer, not just celebrity examples.
Tax Attorney Steve Moskowitz has represented thousands of clients who have not filed their returns and they have not been criminally charged. If you do not file it the IRS makes up tax returns and sends you a bill often for more than you would owe if you had filed. The IRS and State can then take your wages and assets for non-payment.
