Tax season has come and gone, but if you are one of over 14 million Americans who owe back taxes to the IRS, now is the time to start figuring out a payment plan before it’s too late.

When you miss a payment, you owe “back taxes.” If you continue to miss payments, you’ll begin accruing penalties and interest immediately. The IRS will then classify your back taxes as “tax debt” and make every attempt to collect.  Chief Tax Officer Mark Steber will give tips on how to handle the IRS and what you can do to prevent penalties and protect your wages, property and future refunds.
