thank you for using justanwer
The smallest amount that the IRS will accept on a payment plan in $25, so if you made arrangements to pay at least that much you should be fine
Please see below:
OK, next question. How much can the IRS attach of a federal retirement?
Since interest is still adding up, you're going to want to pay your debt down much sooner
I have agreed to pay them $440 per month, am I OK?
As long as you're making your payments, there should be no attachment/lien
How can I verify they have accepted by offer?
Have you sent them a payment yet?
I was waiting to here from them.
Should I remit payment before being contacted?
I actually can see no reason why they WOULDN'T accept it (you're paying much more than the $25 minimum) then I would send them a check as soon as possible
be sue to include your SS# XXXXX the year you are paying the debt for)
Problem is where I live there are no personal checking accounts. Everything is paid by ATM.
Can I set up an allotment from direct deposit to pay the debt?
IRS accepts CC and money orders also
So, just to be clear I should begin payments before they contact me?
you're most welcome
Should I remit the amount I asked for?
The $440 per month?
TY you have answered my questions.
that way they can match up the paperwork & your check
Please come back to justanswer if we can help you in the future
One more thing. The link you sent me is to set up payments online. Can I use that?
And does the government shutdown affect anything?
The form you want to fill out is
Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request\
the IRS has been affected by the govt shutddown
however, they do accept payments
its really more or less the audits that can't be done right now
OK, I tried to call and they informed me that the shutdown caused the help line to be discontinued.
Yes I found that out also
I can't imagine the shutdown will continue too much longer
but by the same token, I have NEVER seen the IRS NOT accept money
I am sorry for being so obtuse, but I have already submitted Form 9465. Should I just go ahead and assume the terms are acceptable and make payment?
You fine..........really.....you're not obtuse..........which, by the way, is one of my favorite words........lol
Some would disagree.
the quicker you get the payment in, the less interest you'll pay in the longrun
I really appreciate the help and professionalism.
