tax evader
Explanation:
According to Cabanellas (Diccionario Jurídico), "omiso" is a "person who fails to perform an obligation or duty". In your case I think it is a tax evader.

neglectful, careless, remiss, negligent person


Explanation:
It comes from the verb "omitir" which means to leave out, to neglect. IN this case, it refers to an individual who has failed to make payment.

agree  Mary Maloof, CT: I would go with "remiss," as the person may be only 1 or 2 months behind and not necessarily defaulting/with intent to evade. I think this is the meaning here.

agree  Rusinterp: In English, the question would be: was there an intent to evade taxes (in which case it would be a tax evader) or whether they just failed to do it, in which case tax evader would be too strong. All depends on further context.

tax cheat


Explanation:
I'd like to see a sentence for context, but <tax cheat> is common for someone who finds ways not to pay his/her taxes or to pay less than he/she should.
