Your tax debt should not be taken taken lightly. The Internal Revenue Service collection activities are in effect. The IRS has several means available to enforce tax filing compliance and payments of tax due and penalty. Even though the pandemic continues, tax debts enforcement activities resumed on July 16, 2020.

If you did not request an extension to file your tax return, the penalty for late filing and interest on any tax due continue to accumulate. The IRS could be lenient in certain cases. It should be noted that the extension to file does not stop interest from accumulating on tax due. The IRS, in fact, encourages taxpayers to borrow money to pay a tax due because their interest could be higher.

You must answer to correspondence from the IRS when an action is required. Do not dismiss any letter.

There are many ways to resolve a tax debt. However, a taxpayer needs to be in compliance for the past 6 years to obtain an abatement, an installment agreement, and an offer in compromise.

1. Some taxpayers could be qualified for an abatement in whole or for a part of the tax liability or penalty.

2. Taxpayers who owe $50,000 or less may not have to file Form 9465 to request an installment agreement.

3. There are cases where taxpayers could apply for an offer in compromise.
