What Happens When You Don’t Pay Federal & Texas State Tax?

If you have forgotten to file a required tax report, the government will send you an estimated tax bill. Taxpayers, who still fail to file and pay the tax return, may face a series of collection actions including, criminal charges, tax liens, late filing penalties, and more. These collection actions are designed to protect the state’s interests and collect past due taxes of taxpayers.

To recap:

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.
