Failure to File

Failure to file is a penalty for failing to file an individual tax return by the return due date, April 15, or the extended due date if an extension was requested and approved.  The minimum penalty is the lesser of 100% of the tax payment required on the return that the taxpayer did not pay on time or a specific dollar amount adjusted annually for inflation.  After 12/31/18, the specific dollar minimum penalty for failure to file is $215.  That is an increase from the $210 amount which applied to returns due between 1/1/2018 and 12/31/2019.
