Those who have fallen on hard times financially and cannot make their tax payments may be eligible for tax debt relief. The
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or private organizations can assist you with
your tax debt.

Understanding Tax Debt Relief:

There are many options for getting out from under your tax debt, including repayment programs with the Internal Revenue Service and
private companies. One way that tax debt relief programs might help you save
money is by waiving late payment penalties.

Interest and penalties increase quickly if you wait to pay your taxes on time. The Internal Revenue Service will charge you more money
if you want to set up a payment plan. To learn more about these costs,
including late payment penalties, visit the IRS website.

Other Options for Reducing Tax Debt:

You can still find ways to make your payments more manageable, even if you don't qualify for any of the IRS's forgiveness or
relief programs.

Personal Loan:

A personal loan could be a smart alternative to a credit card if you have a lot of debt and prefer a lower interest rate. You can
pay your taxes in one convenient instalment using the funds from your loan.

Roth IRA:

Withdrawals from 401(k)s are typically reserved for dire situations due to the possibility of additional taxes and penalties.

Debit cards:

To make your tax payment more manageable, you can use a credit card and pay for it over time. Consider the potential for hefty
interest and processing fees when using a credit card. Before you do this, you
need to figure out a way to get out from under your debt.

Home equity lines of credit (HELOC) or loans secured by real estate (HELO):

Although the interest rates on a home equity loan or line of credit (HELOC) might be lower than those on other loans, defaulting on
either could result in losing your primary residence.

The Internal Revenue Service Debt Relief Program: Who Is Eligible?

You may be eligible for a tax debt relief program if you are having trouble making your tax payments due to various circumstances.
Incorrectly reporting income or failing to claim all deductions were the most
often cited tax concerns with the new start program.

The above can lead to IRS debt, asset seizures, and federal tax liens. An IRS audit may be in your future if you have filed a tax
return and made a serious error.

If you're eligible, you can lower your tax bill by using tax preparation services. The IRS has very limited authority to garnish
wages. Please immediately speak with a tax expert from their team upon
receiving a notice of intent to levy.

The staff can assist you in understanding IRS notices, which may contain qualification requirements that vary by IRS office.

doesn't mean you have to worry and stress about it. If you or a loved one are
