How to Arrange a Streamlined Installment Agreement


Taxpayers who owe less than $25,000 in taxes may qualify for a Streamlined Installment Agreement. This IRS program is designed to make it easier to pay off any tax debts over time without putting you at financial risk. Read on to see how we helped our client set up an agreement to tackle $22,000 in unpaid taxes.


John, a single professional residing in Fulton County, Georgia, first came to us for help with unfiled tax returns and an outstanding balance of $12,000 on his tax account. But after we prepared and filed his missing tax returns, we found he owed the IRS an additional $10,000.


By leveraging his monthly income of $6,000 and $75,000 in home equity, John was able to qualify for a Streamlined Installment Agreement. Negotiating on John’s behalf, we were able to set up a manageable $305/month direct debit payment with the IRS


The entire process, including tax preparation, filing, and agreement setup, took just three months to complete. And since John’s tax debt was below $25,000, he managed to prevent a tax lien from being filed against his home.
