To qualify, a taxpayer must currently be “compliant.” A taxable person is compliant when (1) all the necessary tax returns have been filed and (2) the taxable person is up to date with the tax obligations of the current year. A taxpayer who owes $50,000 or less to the IRS in taxes, penalties, and interest typically qualifies for an optimized instalment payment agreement. For taxpayers who owe more than $50,000 but less than $100,000 $US, an optimized qualification may also be possible through an expanded criterion tested by the IRS. For taxpayers who owe more than $100,000, they must file annual accounts to negotiate a payment agreement. The time it takes to get an IRS deal depends on your situation, the type of contract, and how you interact with the IRS. Learn more about H&R Block. Here you`ll find a guide to all types of installment payment contracts – and how to start looking for the right one for you.

By accepting your request, we agree that you pay the tax you owed in monthly instalments, instead of immediately paying the full amount.
In return, you agree to make your monthly payments on time. You agree to provide updated financial information upon request. The waiver or refund of user fees applies only to taxpayers with adjusted gross income, as for the last year for which such information is available, at or less than 250% of the current federal poverty line (low-income taxpayers) who enter into long-term payment plans (instalment payment agreements) on or after April 10, 2018. If you are a low-income taxpayer, user fees are waived if you agree to pay electronic direct debits by entering into a debit contract (DDIA). If you are a low-income taxpayer, but you are not able to make electronic debits through the conclusion of a DDIA, the user fees will be refunded after the conclusion of the installment contract. If the IRS identifies you as a low-income taxpayer, the online payment agreement tool automatically reflects the applicable fees. If you apply for a payroll withdrawal agreement with Form 2159, your user fee is $225. If you are a low-income taxpayer, you will find more information about reduced rate subscription fees later.
If you owe less than $10,000 to the IRS, your payment plan is usually approved automatically as a “guaranteed” instalment payment agreement.
