If you file your return late and you are due for a refund, then there is no real consequence for tardiness. But if you owe a balance, then penalty and interest will accrue each month on the amount you owe until it is paid in full. And the failure to file penalty is five percent a month of the unpaid balance, whereas the failure to pay penalty is only a half-percent of the unpaid balance. Therefore it is wise to file, even if you cannot pay the balance owed, because your penalties will accrue much more slowly.
