If you have forgotten to file a required tax report, the government will send you an estimated tax bill.

These collection actions are designed to protect the state’s interests and collect past due taxes of taxpayers.
5% of the tax due is applied for the first 30-day period which the outstanding tax liability is late.
10% of the tax due is applied for the second 30-day period which the outstanding tax liability is late.
When the tax liability is still not paid after 60 days, a 10% penalty fee and additional interest will be charged to the outstanding balance.
