How to Arrange a Payment with the IRS

Arranging a payment to help pay off your IRS tax debt can be a lengthy process that involves many steps. Most people opt to have an experienced tax professional help them to get a tax settlement agreement rather than facing the IRS on their own. Dealing with the IRS can be stressful and a bit intimidating, but this is no reason for you to not pursue setting up some type of payment arrangement that can help you pay off back taxes and satisfy the IRS at the same time.

When you seek to set up a payment agreement to pay off your IRS tax debt, you must be able to make a large enough monthly payment to pay off the entire debt in a 2 year period. If the payment amount you submit is not large enough, it could be rejected and you will need to resubmit another payment amount.

In order to arrange a payment for your IRS tax debt, you must visit the IRS website and download the 9465 form. Complete the form, making sure all of the information is up to date and accurate. The IRS typically approves payment agreements up to $10,000. If you are requesting a payment agreement that is higher than that amount, you will need to submit further information and some extra paperwork before you can get approved. If you are going to try for payments higher than $10,000, you should contact a tax attorney and get counsel and advice on proceeding with the payment agreement.

After the negotiation phase has ended and your agreement has been accepted, you can begin paying off your IRS tax debt. It is important to keep in mind there are a few things you can do that will cause your agreement to be revoked and then you will be forced to pay the debt in full. Be sure to make your monthly payments on time or else the agreement will be cancelled out. Make sure that you submit the proper financial information whenever it is asked for and that it is accurate and up to date.
