What If I Cannot Pay My Tax Bill?

Due to a wide range of circumstances, many individuals find themselves owing taxes to the IRS they simply cannot pay. The amount could be $15,000 or it could be $5 million. Either way, the IRS will do what it takes to obtain payment. Fortunately, taxpayers like you have options. Through a process known as an IRS offer in compromise, in some situations, U.S. taxpayers can negotiate with the IRS to pay a lower amount than the original tax liability. In other circumstances, taxpayers may be able to work out a monthly manageable payment plan over a period of time to pay off a tax debt.

But each situation is unique. Optimal results require the help of an experienced tax professional.
