HelloYour son can call the IRS (phone number on last statement) and request a deferment until his situation improves. Because this will be for longer than 1 month the IRS will want to know all the information surrounding his inability to pay. Health reasons are accepted.They will most likely want a financial statement. They can place his account account in uncollectible status if (Uncollectible status is when the IRS makes a determination that forcing a payment plan would put you in economic hardship). Generally the month after he misses his payment, expect the IRS to send him a "Notice of Intent to Terminate Installment Agreement" (IRS Notice CP523). This notice is required by law – specifically, Internal Revenue Code 6159(b)(5).He can call the number on that notice.You are required to click a positive rating if I am to be credited with the response.You have to actively click on a rating and click submit.
