    You should go ahead and file your 2006 then file your 2007. You will amount more penalties and interest if you wait for the IRS to catch up to you. It may take them a few years to do so.

    File both returns. Do them in either order, but send them in separate envelopes.

    Since you are self-employed, you will owe. For 2006, you will owe a lot since by waiting you tacked on 25% in failure to file penalties.

    If you only made $26,000 and no one else claimed you, then you probably have a tax return coming to you from last year. You may have to pay twice if you are having someone else do your taxes, because they will need to do last years and this years. Get all your forms together for 2006 and 2007. Start now, because you may be missing some and need a few weeks to request them from 2 years ago. Good luck.

    File the 2006 return now. If you owe, there will be a penalty (money) for being late, but much less than than if you never file or pay (prison?).
