Here’s how to get caught up on your late 2008 taxes
If you forgot to file your 2008 tax return, you should do so as soon as possible. Sure, it’s been 6 years since the tax filing deadline for that year, but you should still get caught up.
Here are two very good reasons reasons why:
- The IRS has up to 10 years to collect
- Late fees increase by the day if you owe tax from that year (the longer you wait, the worse the situation)
And an even better one:
- Uncle Sam is knocking at the door.
Before you get started, there’s something you must know: you won’t be able to e-file your 2008 taxes. In fact, the IRS shuts down the e-file system at the end of each tax season and that one was, well, a long time ago.
If I can’t e-file then how do I file?
With easy e-filing unavailable, it means that after you have prepared your tax return and we’ve reviewed it you will need to download, print, and sign it before hopping over to the post office to mail it to the IRS or state.
So if you’re suddenly in a hurry to get that 2008 return out, you want to allow for some time ahead.
