Steps to Take to Pay Off Your Tax Debt

When you're facing mounting tax debt, it is important to take a look at the situation as a whole. You can take the following steps to find out where you stand and mitigate further damages:

  • Work with a professional - Whether you have existing tax debt or you have determined you will not be able to repay your full tax return, it is important to retain an experienced attorney or accountant for tax debt right away
  • Determine your total tax debt - You can use a free tax calculator to find an estimate for your tax debt, and your attorney or accountant can look over all of the details to determine what you owe
  • File all tax returns - Even if you can't pay the full amount, not filing your taxes can land you in a far worse situation
When filing, you should pay as much of your tax as you can to avoid additional interest and penalties. You and your tax professional can then work together to find a way to manage your remaining debts.

How We Can Help You Eliminate Your Tax Debt

Options that may be available to you include an installment agreement – where you pay off your tax debt over the course of 120 or more days – or an offer in compromise, which involves negotiating a settlement of your tax debt for less than its full value.

These two options are often the most effective means for most people to deal with owing the IRS in back taxes.

Installment Agreements

An installment agreement is a payment plan with the IRS, allowing you to repay your tax debts over a period of time. Installment agreements must be approved by the IRS and do require setup fees. These fees can be waived or reimbursed if you qualify as low income taxpayer.

You are afforded some amount of freedom in choosing the amount you pay per month on your installment agreement. However, paying more per month can reduce your interest and tax penalties.

If you owe less than $10,000 to the IRS, you will likely be approved from a guaranteed installment agreement. This means that you have no minimum payment required as long as you pay off the balance within three years.

Offer in Compromise

An offer in compromise may allow you to settle your debt for less than what you owe to the IRS. In approving an offer in compromise, the IRS considers factors such as:

  • Your ability to pay
  • Your current income
  • Your expenses
  • Existing equity in your assets

Applicants involved in an ongoing bankruptcy or with recent unfiled returns are automatically disqualified from an offer in compromise.

Offers in compromise can be paid either through a lump sum cash or through periodic payments. Periodic payments can be made while the IRS looks over your application, counting toward the offer in compromise amount if it is accepted.
