Installment Agreements

Finding Solutions to Serious Tax Delinquencies

Once a tax debt reaches a certain point, the taxpayer may not have the means to become current on the obligation through a large payment. In these situations, an experienced tax lawyer may be able to negotiate with the IRS to work out an installment agreement.

Through an installment agreement, the IRS permits taxpayers to satisfy tax, interest and penalty obligations over time by making agreed upon monthly payments. Once an installment agreement is established, the IRS is required by law to stop enforced collection activities such as levying wages and bank accounts and placing liens on property. As long as the taxpayer remains current with the payment obligations, and required return filings, the IRS cannot re-institute enforced collection activities.
