Use IRS Form 9465 Installment Agreement Request to request a monthly installment plan if you can't pay your full tax due amount. The IRS encourages you to pay a portion of the amount you owe and then request an installment for the remaining balance. Form 9465 is available in all versions of TaxAct®. You can file Form 9465 by itself, even if you've already filed your individual tax return.
If you need help filling out Form 9465, go to our Form 9465 - Installment Agreement Request (Before Filing Return) FAQ.
