If you find yourself owing money to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for unpaid taxes, it can be a stressful and overwhelming situation. However, there are several ways to get out of IRS debt and resolve your tax problems. In this blog post, we'll discuss some strategies for getting out of IRS debt, including paying off the debt in full, setting up a payment plan, and settling the debt for less than what you owe through the Offer in Compromise (OIC) program.
Pay off the debt in full: The easiest way to get out of IRS debt is to pay it off in full. If you have the money to do so, you can simply write a check or make a payment online to the IRS. If you're unable to pay off the entire debt at once, you may be able to set up a short-term payment plan, known as a “partial payment installment agreement,” to pay off the debt in full over a period of time.
