If you receive a payment plan in instalments with the Department of Revenue and you do not comply with any of the conditions, the department must take legal action to immediately impose the collection of the tax. If you are not eligible for a payment plan through the online payment tool, you can still pay in installments. As long as the NCDOR has not collected the 20% recovery fee before the implementation of the agreement, it cannot collect it for the duration of the agreement. If they implement the royalty before the agreement, the balance of the debt reflects the 20% recovery tax. For the duration of the agreement, ncdor applies any tax refunds or lottery winnings you receive to your debt. If you believe you qualify for low-income taxpayer status, but the IRS has not identified you as a low-income taxpayer, please read Form 13844: Application for Reduced User Fees for Instalment Payment Contracts PDF for a guide. Applicants must submit the form to the IRS within 30 days from the date of their instalment contract to ask the IRS to reconsider their status.
