5% of the balance owing +1% a month is going to be the penalty for every month that you miss out on not filing your taxes. However, that number and that percentage is just in the first month. It gets far worse in the second month and every subsequent month thereafter. For every late month after the first month, the penalty goes up to 10% of the balance owing +2% for every month until you legitimately file. It is going to start up and add up, in a very big hurry, and it is going to be very detrimental to your business.
