It is common to have your taxes prepared only to find out you cannot afford to pay the amount you owe. One of the various types of installment agreements available might be a solution for you.
If you owe the IRS or State more than you can afford to pay, you are allowed to make payments over a given period of time. Assuming you owe less than $50,000 and have the ability to full-pay over time, the IRS allows you a 72-month period to do so. This is known as a streamlined installment agreement.
IRS or State Installment Agreements allow you to pay down back tax debt over time. Expert help is advised call (818) 704-1443 to get help with Installment Agreements
If you cannot pay off your balance in full, you may claim hardship. Claiming hardship is the process in which you make payments based upon your ability to pay and not based upon the amount you owe. If the circumstances apply, you may not need to pay anything. This is known as Currently Non-Collectible (“CNC”) status.
How Installment Agreements work
This process sounds simple but you should know that the IRS has strict rules on what they consider to be necessary and reasonable living expenses as they relate to what you can afford to pay. If the IRS sees that you are paying for items they will not consider in their calculations, you may be forced to pay a monthly amount that is unaffordable.
