Terms of this agreement
By completing and submitting this agreement, you (the taxpayer) agree to the following terms:
• This agreement will remain in effect until your liabilities (including penalties and interest) are paid in full, the statutory period for collection has expired, or the
agreement is terminated. You will receive a notice from us prior to termination of your agreement.
• You will make each payment so that we (IRS) receive it by the monthly due date stated on the front of this form. If you cannot make a scheduled payment,
contact us immediately.
• This agreement is based on your current financial condition. We may modify or terminate the agreement if our information shows that your ability to pay has
significantly changed. You must provide updated financial information when requested.
• While this agreement is in effect, you must file all federal tax returns and pay any (federal) taxes you owe on time.
• We will apply your federal tax refunds or overpayments (if any) to the entire amount you owe, including the shared responsibility payment under the
Affordable Care Act, until it is fully paid or the statutory period for collection has expired.
• You must pay a $225 user fee, which we have authority to deduct from your first payment(s) ($107 for Direct Debit).
• In lieu of the above user fees, you may be eligible for a reduced user fee of $43. See Form 13844 for qualifications and instructions.

• This agreement may require managerial approval. We’ll notify you when we approve or don’t approve the agreement.
• We may file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien if one has not been filed previously which, may negatively impact your credit rating, but we will not file a Notice of
Federal Tax Lien with respect to the individual shared responsibility payment under the Affordable Care Act.
HOW TO PAY BY DIRECT DEBIT
Instead of sending us a check, you can pay by direct debit (electronic withdrawal) from your checking account at a financial institution (such as a bank, mutual
fund, brokerage firm, or credit union). To do so, fill in Lines a and b. Contact your financial institution to make sure that a direct debit is allowed and to get the
correct routing and account numbers.
Line a. The first two digits of the routing number must be 01 through 12 or 21 through 32. Don’t use a deposit slip to verify the number because it may contain
internal routing numbers that are not part of the actual routing number.
Line b. The account number can be up to 17 characters. Include hyphens but omit spaces and special symbols. Enter the number from left to right and leave any
unused boxes blank.
CHECKLIST FOR MAKING INSTALLMENT PAYMENTS:
1. Write your social security or employer identification number on each payment.
2. Make your check or money order payable to “United States Treasury.”

4. Don’t double one payment and skip the next without contacting us first.
5. Enclose a copy of the reminder notice, if you received one, with each payment using the envelope provided. Make a payment even if you do not receive a
reminder notice, write the type of tax, the tax period and "Installment Agreement" on your payment. For example, "1040, 12/31/2014, Installment Agreement”.
You should choose the oldest unpaid tax period on your agreement. Mail the payment to the IRS address indicated on the front of this form.
