AZ-DOR PAYMENT PLANS TO RESOLVE BACK TAXES


Arizona Department of Revenue will typically allow 24-month Payment Agreements for individuals to satisfy their tax liabilities.

Businesses can expect to be held to 12-month Payment Agreements, although you may be allowed 24 months depending on a few things, such as – 
  • Your company’s compliance history
  • The type of tax owed, and 
  • Your company financials
You will likely have to complete detailed financial statement forms.
  • Personal Collection Information Statement, and/or 
  • Business Collection Information Statement
You may also have the option to enroll and pay your AZ-DOR taxes online HERE.  
**AZ-DOR will not allow more than 2 previous Payment Agreements, so don't default your Agreement once you get it.  

CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY YOUR ARIZONA TAXES DEBT?


Can’t afford to pay your Arizona tax liability?  You may not have to!  If you qualify for Hardship Status the AZ-DOR will not require you to make any payments towards your back taxes.Hardship Status is geared towards individual taxpayers more so than businesses.  To qualify for Hardship Status, you will need to maintain current tax compliance and experience a hardship, such as – 
  • Natural Disaster
  • Unemployment
  • Decrease In Pay
  • Medical Expenses / Illness
  • Death In Family
  • Home or Auto Repairs
  • Moving Expense
  • Divorce or Separation
  • Child Support

REDUCE YOUR AZ-DOR TAX DEBT


Offer in Compromise – Arizona Department of Revenue does have an Offer in Compromise program available to settle your tax liability for a lesser amount.  If you lack equity in assets, such as your home, and lack the ability to make monthly payments, you may qualify for the AZ-DOR OIC.  Like the IRS, the evaluation process is very in-depth. To get started you will need to complete our Arizona Offer in Compromise Form.  

We do not recommend the Offer in Compromise for operating businesses. 

Penalty Relief – Arizona may consider your request for penalty relief, depending on the reason you provide for the accrual of the tax liability.  AZ-DOR has a lengthy list of reasons that are considered allowed hardships for penalty relief.  Get the form HERE.
