IRS Letter 2272C

We can't consider your IRS Installment Agreement Request

Each year, millions of taxpayers are faced with a tax bill they can't afford to pay. Thankfully, the IRS provides options to help taxpayers pay what's owed. H&R Block tax experts will explain your options and help you formulate a plan to pay off your IRS balance.

What happened?

  1. You requested an installment agreement to pay taxes owed.
  2. The IRS reviewed your request and sent Letter 2272C because either:
