There is no shame in falling behind on your taxes but submerging your head in the sand is the wrong way to resolve your tax issues.
In most situations back taxes arise from not filing tax returns on time. Did you know that IRS files Automated Substitute for Return (ASFR) for you if you fail to file on time? “Automated”, it is done by computer, not a human being. And rest assured, that computer does not consider any deductions or credits that otherwise you might be benefiting from.
Therefore, when you receive a notice from the IRS with the assessed amount for the tax year you did not file a return for, the first thing to do is to file tax return for that year. No matter how many years you are behind.
In other situations, back taxes situation comes up if you do not pay your taxes on time. There are multiple solutions as well to solve a problem.

If a tax return is not filed, taxpayers have three years to file returns and claim refunds. If that period lapses, the IRS will retain any refund. It is common for clients to lose their refunds because they simply did not file.
