IRS Payment Plan | Flat Fee Tax Service

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? Find Out.

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? Find Out.

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, refinance 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

1. Your gross monthly income.

2. Total household income.

The penalties and interest that the IRS will add to your tax debt will be incredible. You can expect your tax debt to double in approximately 3 years.

Taxpayers and many tax representatives seem to think that sending a simple letter to the IRS requesting that the IRS Penalties and Interest be abated will suffice. The truth is that the IRS receives millions of these simple IRS Penalty and Interest relief request letters every year and the great majority will be summarily rejected.

The IRS receives so many sub-par requests for IRS Tax Relief, an Application / Petition that is done with thought and thoroughness stands out in a positive way.

The purpose of IRS Penalties is to punish you, the taxpayer, for failing to comply and to send a message to other taxpayers that compliance will be strictly enforced. If neither of these purposes is furthered by the imposition of an IRS tax penalty, the IRS should not assess it. Furthermore, for most types of IRS penalties, if the taxpayer has Reasonable Cause for his failure to comply, the IRS penalty should not be assessed.

The IRS lists numerous situations in which Penalties and Interest can be abated with “reasonable cause” based on your own unique situation.

Reasonable Cause – The IRS considers Reasonable Cause for Penalty Abatement to be:

  • Ignorance of the Law (you must demonstrate you made a reasonable effort to learn the law) Error or Mistake was Made, but you must still show due diligence, ordinary business care and prudence” had been exercised.
  • Forgetfulness, but you must still show “ordinary business care and prudence”. Serious Illness, Death, or Unavoidable Absence.
  • Unable to Obtain Records
  • Incorrect Advice from a competent tax professional
  • Incorrect Advice directly from the IRS, written or oral
  • Fire, Casualty, Natural Disaster, Other Disturbance

The Internal Revenue Manual goes on to say that ANY REASON will be accepted as Reasonable Cause if it can be shown that the taxpayer exercised ordinary business care and prudence and, despite that, was still not able to comply with their tax obligations.

An IRS Penalty Abatement Petition gives your Flat Fee Tax Service Attorneys the opportunity to plead your case to the IRS. Unlike most other claims for Tax Relief, a Penalty Abatement puts a very human face on your IRS case, which certainly can work for your best interest. Decisions are made by the IRS on an individual, case-by-case basis, which is very encouraging for you.

Have you had any of the below life experiences affect your life in an adverse manner?

Divorce?
Medical Reasons?
Substance Abuse?
Loss of Income?
Death in the Family?
Failed Business?
Something happened to you.

In fact, IRS guidelines generously suggest that a Penalty Abatement should be “generally granted when the taxpayer exercises ordinary business care and prudence” in trying to pay their back taxes.

 “Reasonable Cause” is a very subjective matter and the only way to definitively determine whether or not a failure to comply was willful or a result of extenuating circumstances is for the IRS to conduct a thorough investigation of all the facts and circumstances giving rise to the failure.

No matter how well you state your case, the IRS Appeals Officer assigned to your IRS Penalty Abatement request will have some hard questions for you. The IRS Revenue Officer probably will look at your history of paying your IRS tax. The IRS will ask, “Is this just another attempt to get out of paying?” That is a question that needs to be overcome.

If you submit a Penalty Abatement petition and it is denied, you cannot make a request on the same grounds again. This all the more reason to have an accomplished professional prepare your IRS Penalty Abatement.

In fact, IRS guidelines generously suggest that a Penalty Abatement should be “generally granted when the taxpayer exercises ordinary business care and prudence” in trying to pay their back taxes.

The following list is taken from the IRM or Internal Revenue Manual that gives the guidelines of what IRS agents are instructed to look at when considering penalty abatement:

  • What are the events that happened, when did it happen, and why did these events prevent you from complying with the tax law?
  • How were your other affairs handled during this time? Did you (or does it appear) single out the IRS not to be but paid other creditors? What steps were taken to try and mitigate your circumstances? Ordinary business care and prudence are closely looked at here.
  • Is there a direct “timeline” correlation between what happened and the taxes being file late or not paid?
  • Is there a history of filing and or paying late? The IRS is going to look at your history; repeat offenders, have a tougher job convincing the IRS that this was not intentional.
  • Were the circumstances “beyond the control of the taxpayer” truly unavoidable, and could not be anticipated? If so, this generally establishes reasonable cause.
  • Documentation will be the bulwark of your case. Provide as much proof of what you are arguing as possible. The more evidence you produce the better the chances for relief.

Typically, a petition is a formally structured letter with an introduction, the request for penalty relief under which relief program(s).

This would be followed by a Statement of the facts surrounding the case demonstrating the “reasonable cause” and ” ordinary business care” and as much documentation of the facts that you can muster.

Finally, any legal or code related facts that would bolster your claim. Remember this is not a court case so there are no precedents. Your expectations of success will be directly related to the experience of the tax professional who has prepared and shepherds your Penalty Abatement. That is the reason why Flat Fee Tax Service believes in this statement:

“If an IRS Penalty Abatement request is worth making – AND A PENALTY ABATEMENT IS ALWAYS WORTH MAKING – a Penalty Abatement is worth making correctly”.
