Have you fallen behind on filing tax returns? Did something happen in your life that caused you to not file a tax return? Then the following year, you weren't sure if filing would raise a flag that you had missing tax returns, so you didn't file again? Perhaps the IRS requested that you file a tax return? Or they may have prepared a tax return for you called a "Substitute for Return".
Keep in mind the IRS doesn't take into account the actual deductions and credits that you should be allowed. In fact, the Substitute for Return the IRS prepares will most likely calculate a much higher tax due. Also, if the IRS prepares a Substitute for Return, the tax due is nondischaragable in bankruptcy.
