IRS Tests Streamlining Installment Requests

The Internal Revenue Service is testing expanded criteria for speeding processing of requests for installment agreements. The test is scheduled to run through Sept. 30, 2017 and will provide more taxpayers the ability to qualify for streamlined processing of requests and the changes could be made permanent based on results.

Among the criteria involved are the following: Individual taxpayers with an assessed balance of tax, penalty and interest between $50,000 and $100,000 may receive accelerated processing of requests if the proposed monthly payment is the greater of their total assessed balance divided by 84 or the amount necessary to fully satisfy the liability by the Collection Statute Expiration Date.

During the test the expanded criteria will be applied to request submitted to SB/SE Campus Collection Operations, including the Automated Collection System. They will not apply to those submitted to W&I Accounts Management, SB/SE Field Collection or through the Online Payment Agreement application.

More information on the test will made available later. In the interim, IRS employees in Campus Collection/ACS can assist requests. About 90 percent of individual taxpayers with a balance due qualify to use the Online Payment Agreement under existing criteria.

Under existing criteria, approximately 90 percent of individual taxpayers with a balance due qualify to use the IRS's Online Payment Agreement application
