I have been getting questions on how to start making payments to IRS for legitimate tax debt. If you owe IRS, you need to make arrangements to start making payments. Check out this IRS webpage below:
If you can not wait until Jan 11th. Complete the two attached forms and send it to the address of the collection notice you received via mail.or call the IRS. 800-829-1040
Then you can begin the process of seeing if you can qualify for an Offer In Compromise.
An offer in compromise (offer) is an agreement between you (the taxpayer) and the IRS that settles a tax debt for less than the full amount owed. The offer program provides eligible taxpayers with a path toward paying off their tax debt and getting a “fresh start.” The ultimate goal is a compromise that suits the best interest of both the taxpayer and the IRS. To be considered, generally you must make an appropriate offer based on what the IRS considers your true ability to pay. Submitting an application does not ensure that the IRS will accept your offer. It begins a process of evaluation and verification by the IRS, taking into consideration any special circumstances that might affect your ability to pay.
Complete the Pre-Qualifier at the webpage below; All tax returns must be filed and you can not have filed for bankruptcy.
I hope this helps....
