Similar to what I was thinking. What if enough people (millions) actually did fail to file taxes and make the IRS spend time warning you that you didn’t file and coming after you? Then when the jig is up hand them the tax form and payment that you filled out months ago. If enough people did that, it might have an impact.
MAYBE, As long as the interest and penalties are figured in, and its timed right.
I think it makes much more sense in this political climate to keep your head under the barbed wire...
I think what you mean to say is “hand them the tax form and payment and interest”. And maybe penalty. But I think filing for automatic extensions is a nice addition. It’s not the money that matters, it is the paperwork. The IRS can be bogged down by a lot of handwritten filings.
