You have always paid your taxes on time, and you didn’t mean to make an exception to that rule. Yet, unlike the IRS and Oklahoma Tax Commission, you have other things on your mind. You have a family who depends on you, work to do, social obligations, and when there’s time, you take care of yourself. With almost every minute of every day taken up, it is easy to see how a tax mistake can honestly be made.
3 Honest Mistakes That Won’t Get You Out of IRS Trouble
Your tax error may have been made honestly with no ill intent. For example, you may have:
- Forgotten to mail your return or check. You may have prepared your return or written out your check, but not mailed it.
- Made a mathematical error. You may have miscalculated the amount due to the IRS.
- Not known the law.
These are unlikely to be valid defenses to the IRS claim that you failed to pay taxes on time. However, that does not mean that you don’t have legal options.
