The easiest way to understand the difficulty people are having with back taxes is by looking at this year’s tax season. Many Americans are finding it hard to pay their taxes, and there is a reason for that. As a matter of fact, there are multiple factors that have affected the increase in unpaid taxes. These changes have made paying off back taxes very difficult.

COVID-19 Pandemic

We get it, and we don’t blame you either. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a disastrous toll on the entire world, not just this nation. As a result, unemployment skyrocketed and left individuals and families struggling to provide for themselves and their kids. With very limited income, these taxpayers have no leftover income to pay off the back taxes that they owe.

Compound Interest

In addition to the inability to make any payments to the IRS, interest is compounded every single day until the debt is paid off. Interest, penalties, and fees have rendered back taxes even more taxing to pay off (pun intended). The IRS has made paying off tax balances a very time-sensitive activity. Taxpayers may realize their $6,000 tax debt is no longer that amount after checking back on it three months later.
