Resuming payments to the IRS

July 13, 2020

If you took advantage of the IRS's People First Initiative tax relief and didn't make previously owed tax payments between March 25 to July 15, you'll need to restart those payments.

The IRS didn't default agreements or reduce balances during the relief period, but you'll need to resume payments by the first due date after July 15 to avoid interest, penalties, and possible default of the agreement.

See for details on resuming payments, including:

  • Installment Agreements
  • Direct Debit Agreements
  • Offers in Compromise
  • Private Debt Collection
