Common Questions About Tax Audit Penalties

Q: Can you go to jail for not paying taxes?
You can’t technically go to jail for unpaid taxes. However, if you’re found guilty of lying on your tax return or not filing your taxes, you can face jailtime.
Q: What happens if you fail an IRS audit?
If the IRS finds issues while they’re auditing you, they will propose changes to your tax return. If you accept them, you’ll have to pay any charges required, including any tax audit penalties.
Q: What are the different types of tax audit penalties?

There are accuracy-related tax audit penalties, which are imposed if you filed a seriously inaccurate return. These penalties include:

  • IRS negligence penalty: Imposed if your negligence or disregard of the rules or regulations caused the underpayment.
  • Substantial Understatement Penalty: Imposed if you understated your income by $5,000 or 10 percent, whichever is greater.
  • Substantial misstatement of the value of property:Imposed if you either overvalued donated property or undervalued depreciating property.
  • Substantial overstatement of pension liabilities: Imposed if you overstated your pension liabilities by at least 200 percent (unless the overstatement is under $1,000).
  • Substantial understatement of a gift or estate: Imposed if you state that the value of a any property claimed on a gift or estate tax return is 40 percent or less of its actual market value.
  • Understatement related to reportable transaction: Imposed if you understate tax liabilities because of a tax shelter or tax avoidance transaction that is disclosed.

You could face a tax fraud punishment if the IRS can prove you filed late, which can include hefty fines and up to 3 years in prison. There are also tax evasion penalties that you could face if the IRS finds that you have willfully concealed or misrepresented financial resources and assets to avoid paying taxes. Tax evasion punishments include 5 years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines for individuals.
