Many people are not sure if they are required to file for income taxes. Whether you have to file federal income taxes depends on various factors, such as your filing status, age, and the amount and type of your annual income. More than 50 percent of U.S. citizens file their taxes before April 1st of each year. The remaining amount will usually file within the first two weeks of April, with an exception of approximately 5 percent that are granted an extension to October 15th. However, the IRS has reported that roughly 10 percent of all U.S. citizens do not file at all. Millions of individuals and businesses throughout the country are either filing illegally, incorrectly, beyond the extension date or not at all. Failing to file income taxes in a timely manner or failing to file them properly can result in various legal problems.
