Plan to Resolve Your Debt with Regular Payments
If you don’t qualify for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Offer in Compromise Program, then an IRS payment plan may be the way to resolve your tax debt problems. IRS payment plans can be implemented so long as a tax debt is fully paid within a six year period. Your payment plan could help reduce your tax burden and may include:
- Monthly payments that must be paid in full and on time
- Lower monthly payments that are customized to your budget and future income
- Automatic withdrawal options
Setting up a payment plan with the IRS could give you a little more time to pay off your tax debts. Unfortunately, interest will continue to build on your tax debts. Yes, your debt may be slowly paid off in manageable increments, but interest will still be charged heavily on your outstanding balance. In addition, you should be aware that the IRS may charge you to initiate a plan. You are required by law to pay the interests, penalties, and fees on your tax debts, so it is wise to speak with a certified public accountant to determine if a payment plan is right for you at this moment.

If you aren’t financially ready to pay your entire debt in full, an installment or IRS payment plan could be ideal for you. IRS payment plans are not for everyone, so I highly advise you to contact El Cid before agreeing to any sort of payment plan with the IRS. Going into a payment plan blindly could have devastating consequences, including further debt. There may be alternative tax relief programs that are a better fit for your personal circumstances, so consult with George Padilla to discuss your options!
