Behind on income tax returns? Now is the time to catch up

Normally when someone has not filed income tax returns for a few years, the IRS is willing to just get the returns filed and paid. It usually has no jail time involved. The IRS will charge interest and some penalties. However, a taxpayer named Laubly was sentenced to eight years in jail for willful failure to file a tax return and for tax evasion. Perhaps it was the tax-evasion charge that the court found as adequate reason for the jail time.
