How does it work?


Payment plan terms require that you file and pay all tax returns by their due date. As long as you honor these terms, we will not take other collection action. However, we will collect any refunds or payments due to you from the federal government, Wisconsin, and other states. We may also issue a tax warrant to secure your debt.
