I don’t want to file these forms. I’m too busy!

lionel-messi1_3467518bDo I really have to file tax returns and pay taxes in the U.S.? What will happen if I just don’t file any tax returns? 
Federal law requires you to file tax returns; if you fail to do so, you are out of compliance with the law, which can result in serious legal difficulties with both the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and can possibly affect your immigration status because of that. Remember, if you earned income in the U.S., your employer has already turned over your withholding dollars to the IRS, so the IRS already knows you had income.
