The IRS assessed its collection activities to see how it could seek relief for taxpayers who are liable but are struggling financially because of the pandemic, by expanding payment opportunities and alternatives for taxpayers to pay the outstanding balances. A payment plan is an agreement with the IRS to pay the taxes you owe in a longer period of time. You should apply for a payment plan if you think you can pay all of your taxes in the extended period. If you are eligible for a short-term payment plan, you are not responsible for a user fee. If you do not pay your taxes when they are due, this may lead to the filing of a notice on the Federal Link Reference and/or an IRS deposit share. See publication 594, THE PDF of the IRS collection process. In addition to what you see on the list, you should keep in mind a monthly payment amount and due date.
