Will I receive a higher penalty than the taxes I owe?

Answer:

The fines imposed for late filing are not supposed to exceed the amount of money that you owe in taxes. However, interest is charged on the amount until you pay it, which means that if you wait for any length of time, the fine could well be more than what you owe in taxes.
