You owe the IRS if you don’t pay the full tax balance shown on your federal income tax return by the due date.
The IRS can charge penalties and interest on that tax balance, and those will add up until you pay off the tax debt.
The IRS will send you increasingly urgent notices requesting payment. If the IRS doesn’t receive a response, the IRS can begin enforced collection action, such as issuing a levy on your wages or bank accounts, or filing a federal tax lien.
