Many rewards come with owning your own business. Unfortunately, one of the not-so-rewarding parts is bills. It is especially stressful to get a bill from a government agency, including the Indiana Department of Revenue for owed state taxes. But no matter what kind of issue you are having, please remember that the Indiana Department of Revenue is here to help you.
To better understand what happens if you get a bill from the Indiana Department of Revenue, let’s walk through the tax collection process.
If you are contacting the Indiana Department of Revenue because you do not have the funds to pay the bill, the Department can work with you. If your business owes more than $500, you might be eligible for a payment plan.
It’s important to know that the bill won’t go away and Indiana Department of Revenue can’t help with a payment plan once the bill becomes a tax warrant.
The longer the collection process goes on, the more serious the consequences become, such as penalties and interest being added to your tax bill, or your tax bill being sent to a professional collection agency. So instead of pushing the bill to the side, be sure to contact the Indiana Department of Revenue right away. It can save you a lot of hassle and stress, and there is someone here at the Department of Revenue that will be glad to work with you and help you solve your problem.
If you would like to speak with a bilingual representative from the Department of Revenue about the collection process, please call (317) 232-2240 (press 2 for Spanish) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can submit questions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org You may also visit our Spanish Web site http://www.impuestos.in.gov/
