If the IRS determines that the taxpayer can pay current taxes as well as operating expenses, and pay delinquent taxes, then the IRS may enter into an installment agreement with the business. Taxpayers identified as repeaters may not immediately be granted installment agreements.

If you can show that your business can pay current expenses including all taxes and make an installment agreement payment, the IRS may agree to set up an installment agreement. Before looking at income and expenses, the IRS will look at any business assets not necessary for the production of income that could be sold to pay off or pay down the tax debt.
