The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) proposed a revised schedule of fees for installment agreements made on or after January 1, 2017. The changes increase the highest possible fee to $225 (up from $120), but reduces fees for certain types of agreements.
The revised schedule favors installment agreements arranged to be paid through direct debit transactions. For instance, installment agreements entered into using the Online Payment Agreement come with a $149 fee for traditional payment methods; taxpayers who choose direct debit payments using the online agreement method will pay $31.
