Hello

You stated "i got tax audited and have to pay now i dont know why "

An audit normally covers a very specific issue about your account or tax return. The IRS will send you a letter that explains the adjustments made to your tax return. The letter will also inform you of your right to meet with an Appeals officer and how to contact the officer. You must bring supporting documentation to your appeals conference with an Appeals officer.

If you do not have the amount to pay the tax amount now due you can request to pay by installments.

You may be eligible to apply for an online payment agreement

  • Individuals must owe $50,000 or less in combined individual income tax, penalties and interest, and have filed all required returns.

An extension is extra time to file a return not to pay so what you want to do is request an Installment.
