When you owe money to anyone, it can be stressful. When you owe money to the government, it can be very stressful. If you receive a bill from the Indiana Department of Revenue stating you owe money, you have options. And most importantly, the Indiana Department of Revenue is here to help you through this stressful collection process.
If you get a bill from the Indiana Department of Revenue, the tax collection process follows like this:
If you are contacting the Indiana Department of Revenue because you do not have the money to pay the bill, the Department can work with you. If you owe more than $100 in individual taxes or more than $500 in business taxes, you might be eligible for a payment plan. If you would like to see if you are eligible to set up a payment plan online, visit www.intaxpay.in.gov
It’s important to know that the bill will not 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.
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 www.impuestos.in.gov/
