IRS Collections and IRS Installment Agreements


In 2012, the IRS instituted additional Fresh Start initiatives to help struggling taxpayers pay their taxes. As part of these initiatives, the IRS relaxed streamlined installment agreement rules for individuals by increasing the threshold from $25,000 to $50,000, and the time to pay from 60 months to 72 months. The IRS also increased the qualifying amount for business trust fund express installment agreements from $10,000 to $25,000 to help businesses pay employment taxes and avoid the filing of a federal tax lien.

Many times the IRS is quite intimidating when pursuing collections of past due taxes.  We at Lefstein-Suchoff CPA & Associates have experience dealing with the IRS, know your rights and can speak to the IRS to negotiate an installment agreement that may be more affordable than you can do on your own.
