Pay by direct debit (automatic monthly payments from your checking account), also known as an installment direct debit agreement (DDIA). With certain exceptions, the IRS is generally prohibited from collecting taxes and the IRS's time to collect is suspended or extended while an installment agreement is pending. For information on payment arrangements, installment agreements, and what happens when you don't take any steps to pay, see Publication 594, IRS Collection Process (PDF). Installment agreements using direct debit and payroll deduction allow you to make timely payments automatically and reduce the possibility of default.

Finally, if you exercise your right to appeal the rejection or termination of an installment payment agreement, the collection period is suspended when the appeal is pending until the date when the appealed decision becomes final. Installment direct debit agreements have a lower user fee compared to other installment agreements, and the user fee may not apply or be reimbursed to low-income taxpayers. A request for an installment agreement is usually pending until it can be reviewed and an installment agreement is established, or the request is withdrawn or denied.
If the requested installment agreement is rejected, the collection period is suspended for 30 days.

File all required tax returns on time and pay all taxes in full and on time (contact the IRS to change your current agreement if you are unable to do so).
