Sorry for your situation.

If these payments are related to previously agreed installment payment plan - and your situation changed after that - you may go back to the IRS and ask to modify that installment agreement.

Another option - if because of financial hardship you are not able to pay your tax obligations - you might ask the IRS to assigned currently not collectible (CNC) status to your tax account. If the IRS agrees - that will postpone further collection action, but that will not resolve your underlying tax issue...

Let me know if you need additional details regarding that status

Otherwise -
