Several of my tax clients living in the States, and earning all their income in the States, will have substantial federal income taxes to pay. What payment options are available to my clients under current IRS rules and regulations, so as to avoid making a lump sum payment?

If your clients' income tax withholdings are not sufficient to cover their liabilities, you should have them make quarterly estimated tax payments using Form 1040-ES or indicating such payments using one of the methods Thomas has indicated below, which can also be found here: www.irs.gov/payments. If your clients owe balances that they cannot pay all at once and do not expect to be able to pay off over the next 4 to 6 months, then they may want to consider a payment plan or installment agreement with the IRS. However, interest and penalties will continue to accrue until the full amount is paid off. Please see: www.irs.gov/individuals/payment-plans-installment-agreementsLeave a Comment 57 weeks ago
