PRLog - Jan. 21, 2011 - Q. What is an SFR or Substitute for Return?
IRS TAKES YOUR $
If you have unfiled tax returns, the IRS may have filed SFR's (Substitute For Return). Most people we speak with think that an SFR is a tax filing. No, it is not a real tax filing. SFR's are the "assessment"
When a taxpayer does not file a return for one year or many years, frequently the IRS will file the return(s) for them. When the IRS files a Substitute Filed Return (also known as an SFR) most of the time the taxpayer will end up owing significantly more in back taxes than if they had filed themselves.
Substitute For Returns (SFRs) are prepared and filed pursuant to authority granted the Internal Revenue Service by IRC §6020(b) which authorizes the IRS to prepare an individual income tax return on behalf of the taxpayer. In most cases, the Automated Substitute for Return (ASFR) system is used to evaluate the IRS Master File (MF) information about the taxpayer, and prepare an SFR for a wage earner or taxpayer without other unresolved taxpayer delinquent accounts (TDAs).
The Proposed Assessment ("30-day letter"): The IRS "audit" of a non-existent "tax return" (SFR) results in a "deficiency."
If the IRS discovers a habitual non-filer before voluntary disclosure, either through its own non-filer programs or through an informant, the IRS will often refer the matter to the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) to determine if criminal prosecution is warranted. The IRS has devoted substantial resources to identifying non-filers.
The IRS will not enter into any payment agreement or enter into tax settlement until you are Compliant and have filed all delinquent tax returns.
