Am I in trouble? If so, how bad?

Would late tax filing delay my citizenship app? Do I need to disclose this on my app? What tax docs should I include in my app? I filed my taxes late for 2008. I eventually filed them in 2011 and owe 0 to IRS. I am about to apply for my US citizenship in April 2013 Thanks

I already answered your question. You have nothing to worry about. Filing your taxes late in 2008 will have no effect on your naturalization application.
