IA-DOR Monthly Payment Plan
As I write this, there is a key discrepancy on the Iowa Department of Revenue website about the maximum length of time for a Payment Plan. In one spot it says 24 months. Payment Agreement Terms listed below and on the website say 36 months. We find it tends to lean toward a shorter payment term for businesses.
You may be able to set up your Payment Agreement with the IA-DOR online. Here are just a few of the Iowa DOR website’s Terms of Payment Agreement. Find the complete list online.
- Maximum payment term is 36 months.
- Minimum monthly payment is $10.00.
- Any new liability will break the agreement and the full balance will become due immediately.
- Once this payment plan is approved, no further legal actions will be taken by the Department of Revenue as long as all payments are made timely. Failure to make scheduled payments timely may result in additional collection efforts at the end of your appeal period. This may include a block to prevent licensing any vehicle, filing of a lien, sanctions on any professional license, and levies on wages and bank accounts.

According to the Instructions on page 2 of the Penalty Waiver Request form, there are 13 penalty waiver reasons. But not all of the reasons will work for all penalty types. You will need to choose the reason(s) and write a description of why the reason fits your circumstances. It can be really difficult to get penalties removed.
