The government sometimes takes a monthly amount if you have fallen behind in your payments. Believe it or not, the State and I.R.S. are easy to deal with once you've signed a written agreement with them.
If you make all your payments, you'll probably never hear from them again. The important point to remember is that once you have an Installment Agreement with them, never miss your payments.
We see many clients that miss payments and then get a tax lien or wage garnishment. Remember to make them your first bill every month and you'll never hear from them again.
