The Pros and Cons of an Installment Agreement

Owing back taxes doesn’t mean that you have to live in fear of penalties, the garnishment of wages or even criminal prosecution. If you live in the Bay Area and owe back taxes, it makes sense to work with a tax attorney in San Francisco to find a way to settle your debts. The IRS has several options available for taxpayers who owe back taxes and one of the easiest to enter into an installment agreement with the IRS. Before you reach out to a tax settlement attorney, learn a bit more about this option.

With an installment agreement, you pay off your tax debt in monthly installments. It eases the burden on you and allows you to pay off the debt in a comfortable manner. If you fail to make a payment, you do run the risk of going into default; setting up an automatic payment method such as direct withdrawal can help you to avoid this. Most installment agreements are set up with level monthly payments but there are also different types and terms of installment agreements which if you qualify may be more suitable for you.  Before you set up an installment agreement, you’ll want to contact an IRS audit attorney to determine what type of installment agreement would be best.

An installment agreement isn’t always the perfect option. For example, if you owe a large amount of money and can only afford to make minimum payments each month, you might find yourself paying for years without making a major dent into the principal amount that you owe. In this case, an option like an Offer in Compromise might be the better choice for you. Contacting the Law Offices Of Jeffrey B. Kahn, P.C. can help you in evaluating your options.
