At William McConnaughy, Your Tax Help Pro, I know that even the most careful individuals can’t prepare for everything. Mistakes happen that can transform your financial life as you know it. When you need help, you can count on a certified public accountant (CPA) to help determine which tax relief options are available to you.
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 problems. IRS payment plans can be implemented so long as a tax account is fully paid within a six year period. Your payment plan could help reduce your tax burden and may include:
Setting up a payment plan with the IRS could give you a little more time to pay off your taxes. Unfortunately, interest will continue to build on your tax. Yes, your taxes 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 interest, penalties, and fees on your tax account, 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 tax account 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 a CPA before agreeing to any sort of payment plan with the IRS. Going into a payment plan blindly could have devastating consequences, including further amounts owed. There may be alternative tax relief programs that are a better fit for your personal circumstances, so consult William McConnaughy, Your Tax Help Pro to discuss your options!
