40 days of Frivolous Tax Arguments: The IRS must prepare federal tax returns for a person who fails to file.

Supporters of this bogus theory say that it’s the IRS’s responsibility to prepare and file a tax return for them if they don’t file. But the tax law really says that if someone doesn’t file their return, the IRS can prepare their return (i.e. make up numbers for the person). It doesn’t say that the IRS must prepare the return. And the tax law doesn’t say that a person is excused from filing a tax return.
