I have not filed a tax return in several years. If I had filed one annually, I would have received money back each year. I realize that there are penalties for not filing. Do they just deduct said penalties from what I have gotten, and leave the remaining balance? I never collected things such as my stimulus check either. If I filed now, would I be able to collect that balance, and any other money I should have gotten? I obviously need to file my taxes asap regardless. Im just curious to know if I will be able to get some of the money back that I am owed from previous years. Or am I going to have to pay a ton of fees and penalties for not filing over the years. I hope this question makes sense. Let me know if it doesnt, and I will repost it. Thanks for any and all help!
