Case 4: Partial Payment Installment Agreement Example
Partial Payment Installment Agreement Example
A man contacted us owing approximately $23,000 to the IRS because of insufficient withholdings on his 401k contributions. He was forced into early retirement, had nine different back surgeries and was finding it difficult to get a job. The tax year causing the issue was 2013.
A power of attorney was completed and our tax professional contacted the IRS to discuss the account and request an immediate stay of enforcement. Master tax files were pulled, as well as tax transcripts. The client’s financials were gathered and organized into the proper forms. Bank statements, letters, correspondence, and other information were reviewed and analyzed. Our tax professional discovered that the total balance that was outstanding was $29,198.37, instead of the $23,000, which the client thought he had owed. There were no tax returns missing.
The tax professional reviewed the client’s financial situation, his transcripts, history and unique situation. Then he recommended that the best possible option, based on the client’s financial situation, would be a Partial Payment Installment Agreement of $200/month with the IRS. This amount would have to be paid until the statute of limitations expired on the tax debt.
During the collection hold period, the client decided to proceed with the Resolution Phase of the program. The tax professional contacted the IRS to set up the Partial Payment Installment Agreement.
Partial Payment Installment Agreement was set in place with the IRS as follows:
Total amount owed: $29,198.37
Resolution Set up: Partial Payment Installment Agreement
Monthly Payment: $200.00
Phases worked: Investigation and Resolution
