People Dealing with Tax Debt

Tax season can be a stressful time for many individuals and businesses. However, what’s even more daunting is dealing with tax debt. Whether it’s due to unexpected financial hardships, incorrect filing, or simply not being able to pay, it can cause a significant burden on individuals and businesses. In this blog post, we will discuss tax debt and how HBI Tax can help individuals and businesses navigate this challenging process.

What is tax debt?

Tax debt is the amount of unpaid taxes owed to the government. It can be a result of unpaid income taxes, self-employment taxes, payroll taxes, or even penalties and interest accrued over time.

Options for Dealing With Tax Debt

The IRS offers several solutions for individuals and businesses to pay off their debt.

Installment Agreements

An installment agreement is a payment plan arranged between the taxpayer and the IRS, allowing the taxpayer to make monthly payments until the debt is paid off. The IRS may require individuals and businesses to provide financial information to determine the monthly payment amount.

Offer in Compromise

An offer in compromise is a program that allows taxpayers to settle their debt for less than the full amount owed. However, this option is only available for taxpayers who cannot pay their full tax debt or if doing so would cause financial hardship.

Currently Not Collectible

A currently not collectible status is granted to taxpayers who cannot pay their debt due to financial hardship. This status delays tax collection until the taxpayer’s financial situation improves.
