Affordable Payment Options

For appropriate cases, the IRS will accept a taxpayer settlement in an amount less —in many cases much, much less—than the total amount of taxes, penalties and interest owed by the taxpayer.

Status-53 occurs when a taxpayer cannot afford to pay the IRS because his or her necessary household living expenses exceed the amount of available household income, the IRS has the ability to classify that delinquent taxpayer as Currently Non Collectible Status.

When a taxpayer qualifies to pay the IRS through a monthly Installment Agreement, the IRS will determine the taxpayer’s monthly payments based on the taxpayer’s financial ability and create an IRS payment plan.
