If you are dreading another tax season because you have not paid last year's taxes yet, you are not alone. Many Missouri residents are caught off guard when they find out they owe Uncle Sam money they do not have. You may also have a healthy fear of the IRS, and rightly so. The federal government has power and license that most other debt collectors do not.

Dentist pleads guilty, avoids prison time in tax evasion case

People who facing criminal charges must often make a variety of different, difficult choices, including whether to fight the charges in court or accept a plea deal if offered. Unfortunately, some people in Missouri ultimately come to the difficult conclusion that there is sufficient evidence to convict them of the allegations against them, prompting them to plead guilty. In fact, a dentist in another state has recently avoided prison time following a guilty plea in a federal tax evasion case.

Bruno DiFabio pleads guilty to tax evasion

When a person in Missouri owns a business, he or she may think nothing of taking cash from the cash register to pay for needed items.

In fact, Bruno DiFabio, owner of several restaurants and reportedly a "nationally known pizza maker" after appearing on Chopped and the Food Network, has recently pleaded guilty to such charges.

If you don't file, the IRS may file a return on your behalf
