If you cannot pay in full, you should send in as much as you can with the notice. The unpaid balance is subject to interest compounded daily, and a monthly late payment penalty. It is in your best interest to pay your tax liability in full as soon as you can to minimize additional charges.
We may be able to offer you a monthly installment agreement. You can use the Online Payment Agreement (OPA) or you can complete and mail an Installment Agreement Request, Form 9465, with your bill. Please attach a voided check to your request to have your payment deducted from your bank account each month. Direct debit installment agreements provide you with the ability to make timely payments automatically reducing the possibility of your defaulting the agreement.
