If you owe the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) money but cannot pay in full, one option available is to set up an installment agreement. This allows you to make monthly payments until the debt is paid off. In order to do so, you need to complete the IRS Form 433-D, which is used to request a payment plan.
One important detail to keep in mind when completing the Form 433-D is the mailing address for submission. This is especially crucial if you want to ensure timely processing of your request.
The correct mailing address for Form 433-D depends on your current location. If you live in a state listed on the first page of the form, you will need to send it to the Cincinnati Service Center address. This includes states such as Alabama, Florida, and Georgia, among others.
If you reside in any other state or territory, including Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, you will need to mail the form to the Fresno Service Center address. This includes states such as California, New York, and Texas.
It is also important to note that the Form 433-D should not be sent to the same address as your tax return. The mailing addresses for installment agreement requests are separate.
If you are unsure which address to use or have any questions about the installment agreement process, you can contact the IRS directly. They have a toll-free number you can call at 1-800-829-1040, and representatives are available to assist you Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time.
By using the correct mailing address when submitting your Form 433-D, you can ensure that your installment agreement request is processed as quickly and efficiently as possible. This can help you get on track to paying off your debt to the IRS and avoiding any further penalties or fees.
