Unpaid Taxes – How Serious Is It?
Leaving taxes unpaid is serious business and can result in costing you a lot of money. It is crucial that you resolve the issue as quickly as possible to avoid penalties and interest on late tax payments and tax returns. It only takes a short amount of time for tax debt to get completely out of control.
Are Issues around Unpaid Tax Payments Solvable with IRD?
In most cases they definitely are. The resolutions we bring about almost invariably bring huge relief to our clients and are resolutions our clients would not have thought were in the realm of possibility. Without a doubt, the penalties and interest IRD imposes on late payments of tax arrears are vicious. However if IRD did not enforce these penalties, large numbers of people would not pay their taxes, and if they did not charge interest that was higher than the banks, people would use IRD as a bank. For instance, if people like property developers could have the use of money they should have paid to IRD for overdue taxes, at a lower rate than what the bank would charge them, then they would use IRD’s money.
