Paying Back Taxes
Back taxes, also known as tax debt, are the unpaid taxes that an individual owes to the government when he or she has not been keeping up with his or her taxes in previous years. Back taxes are assessed by the government against a taxpayer after the individual has failed to file his or her tax returns, and it usually includes a certain level of interest and penalties for being delayed.
If you have back taxes that have piled up, it is important that you strive to pay those debts back before more expenses accumulate.
