Can I Use H&R Block Software to Set Up a Payment Plan With the IRS?

If you can’t pay your entire balance due when your file your taxes, you still have options for paying off your taxes when you’re ready at a later time. One option is to use H&R Block to set up a tax payment plan. With a payment plan, you’ll be able to pay more of your taxes later.
