    I was putting together a lease, and wondering about late rent. Home is renting at $1000/m. I have a late rent charge of $25 after the 5th day. Due 1st, 5 day grace to 6th (for Friday Checks if needed), then on the 7th I add it. Let's say someone doesn't pay until the 20th, can you, or have you, added additional late charges? Is that a normal practice? Or is it just one late charge per rental invoice? Thanks

    Best answer: In most cases: No,

    Failure to file a return is considered simple negligence and is not a crime. When someone does not file a tax return the IRS runs a substitute return using the worst case assumptions and if they think the person owes money they start collections and if they think the person is going to get a refund they just keep their money.

    The only way someone can be jailed for failure to file returns is if a court has specifically ordered them to file. In that case they could be arrested for contempt of court.

    Your Dad might be a bad man, but he (probably) won't go to jail just for not filing taxes.
