Unfortunately, there's little that can be done to speed up the process. The IRS must process your return before you can make payment arrangements
It takes a few weeks for your return to be processed when you mail it in.
A lawyer will not be able to speed things up.
Once your return is processed, since the amount you owe is below $50,000 you can apply online for a payment plan

I wonder if you can help. I have been working on paying my back taxes to the IRS using payments. They have said although I have not officially got a payment I could start making payments which I have. Because I wanted to be head of the game I made a couple of bigger payments using one of the approved government payment companies.
My questions. I am currently away in the UK and don't know if they have sent me a letter confirming the payments and I am worried I may miss payment.
2. Are the IRS immediately informed by the payment company that I did make a payment. I remember it saying payment successful but I don't think I got a receipt.
i really want to put this stuff behind me and I appreciate your help!
