Owe Taxes But Cant Pay - March 2010 (ASL) - YouTube video text script

HI… I’M THOMAS… AND I WORK FOR THE IRS.

ARE YOU AFRAID TO FILE A TAX RETURN BECAUSE YOU OWE MONEY BUT CAN’T PAY?

DON'T WORRY.

THE I-R-S HAS A LOT OF WAYS TO HELP IF YOU’RE HAVING TROUBLE PAYING.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.

FILE A TAX RETURN...OR AN EXTENSION TO FILE A TAX RETURN… ANYWAY.

WHY?

BECAUSE THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT FAILURE-TO-FILE PENALTY.

AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO AVOID IT IS FILE A TAX RETURN. 

AFTER FILING …PAY WHAT YOU CAN BECAUSE YOUR BALANCE IS SUBJECT TO INTEREST AND A MONTHLY LATE PAYMENT PENALTY.

THEN CONTACT US THROUGH THE RELAY SERVICE TO DISCUSS YOUR PAYMENT OPTIONS AT 1-800-829-1040.

JUST REMEMBER… IF YOU NEED HELP… CONTACT US BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY WAYS WE CAN HELP YOU.

FOR EXAMPLE, A SHORT-TERM EXTENSION TO PAY… AN INSTALLMENT AGREEMENT OR SOME OTHER ARRANGEMENT.
