By now you have hopefully been able to file your 2009 Indiana income taxes, received your refund, paid your bill or have set up a payment plan with the Indiana Department of Revenue. But what if you didn’t file you taxes by the April 15 deadline? What do you do now, especially if you owe money to the state?

Second – if you can’t pay the full amount due up front, know that you’ve got options. Here are two courses of action available:
If you just can’t come up with the full amount due when the bill arrives, you may be eligible for a payment plan. Basically, if you owe more than $100, and can pay at least 20 percent down, you may qualify (businesses will qualify if they owe more than $500, and can pay at least 20 percent down). Contact us after you get the bill to make payment-plan arrangements. Once the plan is approved, you can mail in payments or pay online.
To speak with a bilingual representative at the Indiana Department of Revenue about your options, please call (317) 232-2240 (press 2 for Spanish) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Or you can submit questions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org You may also visit the Department’s Spanish Web site at www.impuestos.in.gov/
