One of the "what if" tax situations that I blogged about yesterday is what if you're having trouble paying your tax bill.
You do have options. Popular ones include installment agreements or even negotiating a lower tax bill with the IRS.
Those payment possibilities and more are included in a handy table compiled by Peter C. Pappas, a Florida-based tax attorney and certified public accountant.
In addition to the usual remedies, Pappas also offers a quick look at such things as lien subordination and levy releases. And if push comes to shove, there's the always-popular "sue the IRS."
Remember, too, that this year the IRS says it will work with you if you're having difficulties. Just give the agency a toll-free call at (800) 829-1040 to get this process started.
