Why do people drop out of the tax system?

Why do people drop out of the tax system?

People drop out of the tax system for a variety of reasons including: procrastination, the inability to pay, divorce, business failure, job layoff, illness, not understanding their filing requirement and some willfully fail to file in an attempt to evade their responsibility to report their income and pay their tax liability. The reason becomes truly relevant where there is a subsequent attempt to abate penalties or where an offer in compromise is subsequently filed.
