“My family has been using Tax Defense Network for more than a year, and we are absolutely amazed by their abilities. We had a big mess of years of unpaid taxes, and TDN helped us file everything and negotiate payment plans with the state and IRS. By the end of our time with TDN, they had saved us tens of thousands of dollars and made a big difference in our quality of life. I would recommend anyone to TDN, no matter how big the tax issue!”

Common Questions About IRS Payment Plans

Q: Does the IRS have a payment plan option for my tax debt?
Yes. And IRS payment plan options aren’t always one-size-fits-all solutions – for instance, some plans are built around how much you owe and your ability to pay. One of our licensed tax professionals can determine the best monthly rate for which you may be approved, request the IRS installment agreement online or by phone, and finalize the details of your arrangement.
Q: What if I can’t pay anything now?
You won’t want to submit an IRS payment plan form if you can’t pay anything at all to fulfill the agreement’s terms. You may be eligible for alternative options, such as Currently Non-Collectible status, which prevents you from having to pay anything for a determined period. We can help explore all your options and work with the IRS on your behalf.
Q: Do you have an IRS payment plan calculator I can use to estimate how much I could pay month-to-month?
During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss with you what your current financial situation is and what you’re able to pay monthly. Afterwards, when we investigate the complicated waters of IRS payment plans with your current situation in mind, we’ll be able to tell you realistically what you can expect from your IRS payments plan.
Q: Can you show me how to set up a payment plan with the IRS?
Negotiating with the IRS is a vigorous process, requiring hours on the phone and complex paperwork. Tax Defense Network does more than teach you how to make a payment plan with the IRS; we’ll do all the legwork for you. We’ll apply for your IRS payment plan and work on your behalf with the IRS to get you a resolution that works for you.
Q: What is the IRS payment plan form and where can I find it?
You’ll have to submit Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request Form. You can find Form 9465 here.
Q: What is the IRS payment plan phone number?
There should be a phone number provided on the IRS letter you’ve received to request a payment plan. Alternatively, you can call the IRS Individual Assistance line at 1-800-829-1040.
Q: What if I get approved for an IRS payment plan?
That’s great news! Your new hard and fast rule is, “Pay as much as you can as fast as you can.” This will help avoid additional penalties. You’ll still be responsible for paying IRS payment plan interest and penalties for your delinquent tax balance until the liability is completely satisfied, even if you’re on track with making your monthly payments.
Q: How do I make my IRS payments?

There are many ways to pay the IRS:

  • IRS Direct Pay: This method can be used for filing individual tax bills or making estimated tax payments directly from your bank account (checking or savings) to the IRS. To use Direct Pay, you need to have a Social Security Number (SSN) or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). There is no additional cost to pay via Direct Pay. You’ll receive confirmation that your pay has been submitted. The bank account information you provide is not stored in the IRS systems.
  • Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS): Both businesses and individual taxpayers can use EFTPS to make income tax payments, employment tax payments, and estimated and excise tax payments. The site is available 24/7 and can be accessed via computer or smartphone. Additionally, you can schedule payments for up to 365 days in advance. To access the EFTPS website, you must have a secure Internet browser with 128-bit encryption. Use the following three items to sign up:
    • EIN or SSN
    • EFTPS Personal Identification Number
    • Internet password
  • Payment by Check or Money Order: If you choose to pay via mail, then you can make your check, money order or cashier’s check payable to the U.S. Treasury. Include your name, address, SSN, daytime phone number, tax period and the tax notice or form number on your method of payment. Do not affix your check or money order to other documents.
  • Payment by Debit or Credit Card: To process payments made by debit or credit cards, the IRS uses standard service providers and business/commercial card networks. This method will charge you a processing fee (amount varies by provider), which may be tax deductible. The IRS does not charge any fee for the transfer or the processing of the payment.
Q: Is there an IRS payment plan address for me to send my payments via mail?
Depending on where you live, the address will be different. You can find the mailing address for your state of residence here.
