IRS Installment Agreement – IRS Payment Plan Revoked – Flat Fee Income Tax Relief Help

The IRS will allow a taxpayer to pay off an income tax debt through an installment agreement. Because interest and penalties will apply. The IRS encourages taxpayers to pay taxes immediately because the IRS is a collection agency. To “encourage” a taxpayer to pay off their past due income tax debt, interest and penalties will be added and can equal 8% to 25% per year. If you do nothing, your overdue income tax debt could double in 4 years.

For most financially struggling taxpayers the thought of paying the entire income tax debt all at once is not possible. An installment agreement is an alternative allowed by the IRS. The IRS has four different types of installment agreements: guaranteed, streamlined, partial payment, and non-streamlined.

Guaranteed IRS Installment Agreement

To qualify for a guaranteed installment agreement with the IRS, the taxpayer must meet the following conditions:

  • Owe less than $10,000, (not including interest and penalties);
  • In the previous five years the taxpayer has filed tax returns, paid taxes owed, and has not entered into an installment agreement;
  • The taxpayer is unable to pay the tax liability when due;
  • The tax liability will be paid off within three years; and
  • The taxpayer must pay at least the minimum monthly payment (tax liability, interest, and penalties divided by 30)

Under this payment plan, the IRS will not file a federal tax lien against the taxpayer.

The IRS Streamlined Installment Agreement

In most cases, a taxpayer that qualifies for a guaranteed agreement will also qualify for the streamlined installment agreement. A streamlined installment agreement has the following requirements:

  • The tax liability, interest, and penalties do not exceed $25,000;
  • The balance can be paid off within 60 months; and
  • The proposed payment is equal to or greater than the “minimum acceptable payment” (the minimum acceptable payment is the greater of $25 or the minimum payment amount reached by dividing the tax liability, interest, and penalties by 50)

The taxpayer must pay a fee of $105 to set up the installment agreement or $52 for a direct debit installment agreement. To restructure or reinstate a previous installment agreement, the IRS charges a $45 fee. Like a guaranteed installment agreement, the IRS does not file a federal tax lien.

IRS Partial Payment Installment Agreement

A partial payment agreement allows the IRS to enter into agreements with taxpayers for the partial payment of a tax liability. To qualify for this arrangement, the taxpayer must complete a financial statement using Form 433-F to report income and living expenses. The IRS will review and verify the information. If the taxpayer has assets that can be sold to pay some of the tax debt, the IRS will require the taxpayer to provide additional information.

If approved, the taxpayer will be required to participate in a financial review every two years. This review may result in the increase in installment payments or the termination of the agreement.

IRS Non-Streamlined Installment Agreement

If a financially struggling taxpayer owes $25,000 or more and can make monthly payments to the IRS, a non-streamlined agreement can be an option. The IRS will not automatically approve this agreement; instead, the taxpayer must negotiate with the IRS by providing detailed financials. The taxpayer must file Form 433-F, Collection Information Statement. This form collects information about income, debts, living expenses, assets, accounts, and allows the taxpayer to propose an installment payment amount.

It will usually take a few months for the IRS to review a proposed payment plan. The IRS may refuse a proposed agreement if it considers some of the taxpayer’s living expenses unnecessary, if untruthful information was provided, or if the taxpayer failed to complete a prior installment arrangement.

If a taxpayer is unable to pay a tax liability through a non-streamlined agreement, consider filing an Offer in Compromise.

  • The financially struggling taxpayer does not file a tax return or pay taxes after the agreement is entered into ;
  • The financially struggling taxpayer provided inaccurate information on Form 433-F; or

IRS PAYMENT PLANS: Don’t Enter into a Very Bad IRS Payment Plan

IRS PAYMENT PLANS: Anyone can call the IRS and end up in a very bad payment plan or IRS installment agreement. If you call the IRS and request a payment arrangement, the IRS will dictate to you what the payment plan will be. Most likely, you will accept it because you are  frightened, overwhelmed with anxiety and “you just want this to be over”. And that, as they say, “is that”. You are now stuck in an IRS payment arrangement that most likely will fail and you will have more IRS problems in the future. What you don’t know are the following:

1. Is the balance of your IRS Tax Debt accurate?

2. Is your IRS Tax Debt be reduced further?

3. Are you eligible for an IRS Offer in Compromise?

4. Can an IRS Penalty Abatement reduce your Tax Debt further do to Reasonable Cause?

5. How close are you to the Statute of Limitations?

6. Can you be declared Currently Uncollectible?

These are some of the pertinent questions that need to be answered before you agree to any IRS Installment Agreement.

Here are a few common questions and answers:

Q. What Happens If I Miss an Installment Payment?

Throughout the term of an installment agreement, your payments must be made on time. If you miss by 1 day, you have defaulted. Failure to make timely payments will default your agreement. A default of your installment agreement will cause the filing of a Notice of Federal Tax Lien and/or an IRS Wage Levy action (IRS Wage Garnishment/IRS Bank Levy). If you agreed to an IRS Payment Agreement that was more than you could really afford, you can expect to fail and default on your IRS payment plan.

Q. Will a Notice of Federal Tax Lien be filed on an Installment Agreement?

The IRS generally may still file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien to secure the government’s interest against other creditors. A notice of federal tax lien (IRS Tax Lien) will be attached to your personal or real property until your final IRS payment is made. The notice filing could have a negative impact on your credit rating. When you call the IRS on your own, while your anxiety level is at an “all time high,” you are apt to agree to anything the IRS dictates to you, you will not be told that the IRS will also file an IRS Tax Lien after you made the IRS Payment Arrangement. Now you’re thinking that you just took care of your problem. You have an IRS payment plan / IRS installment agreement and everything is just fine. Don’t be surprised if you find out later on (when you want to purchase a home, re-finance your house, get a credit card or purchase a car), that you find that you have a Federal IRS Tax Lien on your credit. Once the IRS records an IRS Tax Lien, the chances of having it lifted are remote.

Meeting the Terms of an Installment Agreement

Besides making installment payments on time, the terms of an installment agreement require that all Unfiled Tax Returns required be filed and payments (including any Estimated Tax payments or Federal Tax Deposits) due during the life of the agreement be made timely. If you have Unfiled Tax Returns, FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE will bring you into IRS Compliance and 9 times out 10 filing your Unfiled Tax Returns will reduce your IRS Tax Debt substantially.

Before you enter into any payment plan or installment agreement with the IRS, you should consult a Tax professional experienced in tax resolution.

Factors involved what you should pay back to the IRS include but aren’t limited to:

1. Your gross monthly income.

2. Total household income.

3. Assets.

4. Type of Assets.

5. Expenses.

6. Allowable Expenses.
