Form 9465 The Installment Agreement Request
Is your tax bill too high for you? You can qualify to pay the IRS in increments. Watch this video to learn more about the missed agreement with Form 9465. As part of the guaranteed acceptance, you cannot take more than three years to pay your taxes and you must commit to complying with all tax laws for the duration of the contract. This means that even during monthly payments, you need to make sure that you file all future tax returns and that you pay your taxes each year until the deadline. If you do not do so, the IRS may terminate your payment contract and request full payment. If you owe more than $50,000, you cannot submit an electronic file and you must return an IRS 9465 form on paper with original signatures. You can do this by adding it to the front of your tax return at the time of filing. The form can also be submitted at any time. Have you ever finished your tax return just to find out that the refund you were waiting for was actually a tax bill? If this happens one day and you are unable to pay the full tax, you should consider applying for a missed agreement so you can pay the monthly taxes. Taxpayers have several payment methods. You can send personal cheques, cash checks or money instructions. In addition, they can withdraw money directly from their bank accounts or pay them by credit card. The Federal Electronic Payment System (EFTPS) can also be used (this requires separate registration).
However, a key factor to remember is that the absolute, positive payment must be made up to the date of each month that is specified in the agreement. However, the IRS has just updated its website to allow taxpayers to change their online payment agreements. Individuals can now review their payment dates and even the terms of their agreement, including the payment method and other details. Authorized representatives can also access the website and do so on behalf of their customers. Form 9465 can be used to request a plan in increments, but should not be used if the taxpayer plans to pay their tax debts within 120 days, or if they wish to use the irS Online Payment Agreement application to request a phased payment contract.

If you owe taxes, penalties and interest of $50,000 or less, it is also possible to avoid submitting Form 9465 and completing an online payment agreement (OPA) application.
, the day of each month you prefer that your payment is due, and the amount of each payment you want to send with the form. Payments can be made between the first and 28th of each month. If the agreement stipulates that the subject must make the payment up to the 15th of each month and the payment is not made, the agreement is immediately considered to be late. Therefore, those who pay by cheque or payment order are advised to send their payments at least seven to ten business days before the due date, to ensure that they are received in a timely manner.
