So the IRS has finally stated that Taxpayers who owe tax will not incur penalties/interest through July 15th (IRS Notice 2020-17); what about Taxpayers who have already filed their tax returns and have scheduled auto debit payments for April 15th? I've had several clients contact me and they now don't want to pay until July 15th. Is there any way to delay the payments to July 15th? Should I advise my Taxpayer to under-fund their auto debit account so that the IRS can only get a partial payment? What can we do to help our Taxpayers?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I just found the following under another post and it will work for my needs. I called the number on the IRS website and was able to CANCEL the April 15th payment of my Taxpayer. I will now send my Taxpayer a payment voucher and set up 'delayed' email reminders as July 15th nears. Ultimately it will be up to the Taxpayer to make sure the payment(s) are made.
Here's the post I found:
Can I cancel an Auto Debit payment:
Yes, by calling the various agencies.
You can google YOUR state all by yourself.
And you'll have to make sure the payments get made some other way...
