This isn’t the sort of thing that your business can ignore. It’s not going to go away by itself. You will begin getting deficiency letters. If the taxes aren’t filed, and some sort of arrangement is made for their payment, then you will face additional interest, penalties, liens, levies, and audits.
Over time the IRS will simply revoke your sales tax number, which will effectively put you out of business. If you are caught selling retail items in your state without a sales tax number, the penalties are severe.
