Can I request an exemption or a refund from the user? The Office of Management and Budget has ordered federal agencies to charge users fees for services such as the installment agreement program. The IRS uses user fees to cover the cost of processing installment agreements. When it comes to work correspondence, the date used to determine the start of the maximum short-term payment plan is 180 days from the date of receipt from the IRS listed in the correspondence, or it is sent by postmark if there is no date of receipt from the IRS.

If the proposed DDIA payment amount is greater than the monthly payment amount indicated on the AMS financial screen, or the proposed DDIA meets the simplified IA criteria (and financial information is no longer required), set up the DDIA with a new monthly payment amount. The amount of payment allowed is based on the amount determined in the full financial statement through completed AMS financial examinations; the taxpayer must pay this amount. Applicants must submit the form to the IRS within 30 days of the date of their letter of acceptance of the installment agreement to ask the IRS to reconsider their situation.
In the case of reinstated PPIA where an existing financial statement was used, no annotation is necessary if the revision date of the current agreement is within 104 cycles from the cycle in which the previous financial statement was prepared.
