Many people dread the coming of April 15th, the day they give the IRS their pound of flesh (to be even more precise, the day the Internal Revenue Service takes its pound of flesh). Many people though find it just simply terrifying. They don’t have adequate funds and they do not know exactly what to do about it. When you don’t promptly take actions and follow the process laid out for people who will be unable to settle their taxes timely, you could find yourself driven down a path you never really want to tread – wherein you forfeit all your assets and your dignity to the Internal Revenue Service. In almost each and every case, if your adversity is legitimate, you can receive tax support from the Internal Revenue Service. Undoubtedly, they are not intending to excuse you from paying your income taxes; but they will go easy on you and can figure out a plan that you can afford.

Tax Day CalendarYour basic plan with requesting the Internal Revenue Service for tax help is to file for an extension before tax day arrives. An extension is simply something you can receive by submitting a 1040 form. You need to send in the form, your full return and a check with your income taxes. Doing this informs the Tax Man that you are making an effort to be accountable even if you can not completely swing your taxes just at that time. When you contact the IRS to ask for income tax support, the call could take a certain amount of your time. You need to keep in mind that there are hundreds of other people just exactly like you that the department tries to handle on a daily basis. As tax day approaches, everyone is all upset and anxious about what to do, and the Internal Revenue Service’ phones are frequently completely ringing off the hook with individuals calling, inquiring with all types of questions. If being put on hold for long periods of your time is not your notion of fun, you could simply just as well write the IRS explaining what the issue is. The only concern is that by doing this, it could possibly be a few weeks before you are given an answer. They will quite possibly provide you a time when you can come in and speak to an agent at the Internal Revenue Service offices to clear details up or they will call you.

So what can you expect when you call the Internal Revenue Service asking for a little bit more time? You must not worry about being audited – they ordinarily do not do that. All they will do is to ask you why you didn’t plan for this by paying by way of your company or making quarterly tax payments. If you have all of the responses prepared and if you have all of the paperwork you need to have at hand, matters should go efficiently. The element in all of this that has people all anxious is that they need to work out a deal. The concept of negotiating with a trained IRS auditor unnerves most people. Sometimes, people are so delighted to be granted an extension that they will make promises that they actually won’t be able to keep. You will need to have completed a little bit of homework ahead of time to know precisely how much you can pay and exactly why you can not pay even more. If the debt you owe the IRS is substantial, it will mean paying it off in small parts and you will quite possibly need to find a tax advisor or lawyer to help you.
