Tax Debt FAQs
We’ve answered some of the most common questions about tax debt:
It’s likely that you have tax debt if you didn’t pay your taxes last year and you didn’t receive a refund. However, that’s not necessarily a sure indication that you owe money to the IRS. When you owe unpaid taxes, the first thing the IRS will usually do is issue a bill and send a letter informing you that you owe.
When IRS back taxes are owed and they haven’t received a response, the IRS will usually issue a lien or levy. This may result in seizing your assets, garnishing your wages, and other collection efforts.
The IRS Fresh Start Program is a debt resolution program that is designed to make paying off a substantial amount of unpaid taxes more affordable. The program establishes a six-year payment plan based on your income and the value of any liquid assets.
It’s important to note that only individuals who owe less than $50,000 in tax debt are eligible for the program. And, you must be current on filing your taxes.
There are a variety of ways to pay off tax debt including installment agreements (Fresh Start Program), an offer in compromise, or temporary delay of action. Working with a tax professional can make this process easier and they may even be able to negotiate better terms on your behalf.
If you owe more than $50,000 in unpaid taxes you may be able to negotiate a payment plan with the IRS. To begin the process, you will need to complete the Collection Information Statement on Form 433-A.
