FAILURE TO FILE is worse that Failure to Pay: Taxpayers who fail to file returns by the deadline may be liable for a failure-to-file penalty. For taxpayers who fail to file their returns more than 60 days after the due date or extended due date, the minimum penalty is now $205 (not the previous $135) or 100 percent of the unpaid tax.
