Question: Can I receive a tax refund if I am currently making payments under an installment agreement or payment plan for a prior year's federal taxes?
No. A condition of your installment agreement is that the IRS will automatically apply any refund due to you against taxes you owe.
- Because your refund is not applied toward your regular monthly payment, you must continue making your installment agreement payments as scheduled and in full.
- Regardless whether you are participating in an installment agreement or other payment arrangement with the IRS, you may not get all of your refund if you owe certain past-due amounts, such as federal tax, state tax, a student loan, or child support. For more information on these non-IRS refund offsets, you can call the Bureau of the Fiscal Service (BFS) at 800-304-3107 (toll-free).
