Arkansas tax collections are controlled by the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration (DFA). They work in a similar manner to the IRS and is willing to work with taxpayers that are having problems with paying their taxes in full.
Below are some of the common tax relief methods offered by the DFA in order to help taxpayers get back into good financial standing on their state taxes.
Arkansas Payment Plan Agreement
If you cannot pay your Arkansas state taxes in full they may consider you for a payment plan. The DFA reviews the payment plan requests on a case by case basis. If your request is accepted additional interest is added to the liability during the period of the agreement. The DFA will also file a tax lien against the person who has entered into a payment plan to ensure that they have the rights to personal property if you default on the payment plan.
The DFA requires individuals to call them to discuss the option of a payment plan. To inquire with the state of Arkansas you can contact them at (501) 682-5000 or (800) 292-9829.
Arkansas Offers in Compromise
The offers in compromise (OIC) program is available to financially distressed taxpayers who are unable to pay due to insolvency. Insolvency is a financial condition where the taxpayer’s expenses exceed their income or their liabilities are greater than their assets. This program gives taxpayers an opportunity to settle their tax liabilities for less than the total amount owed if they qualify.
If you feel that you meet the qualifications of the offers in compromise program then it is important that you submit a fully completed application with no information missing or they will return it to you and will not accept the filing. In order to file for an offer in compromise, you must complete Form 2000-4 Offers in Compromise (OIC) Applications and Checklists.
For assistance from the state of Arkansas in completing the OIC, you can contact the Problem Resolution and Tax Information Office at (501) 682-7751.
