Taxpayers Must Pay Balance Due on 2011 Taxes
Posted: June 11, 2012
Taxpayers who filed their 2011 income tax return, had a balance due on their return, and did not submit a payment will receive a balance due notice in the mail during the next few weeks. These bills are issued annually, after the April income tax deadline. In all cases where there is a delay in payment, penalty and interest will be charged on the amount due. When the balance due notice is received, taxpayers have the option of paying the full balance due or setting up an installment plan.
How to pay a balance due
If the taxpayer wishes to pay the full balance due, payment must be made by the due date printed on the balance due notice to avoid further late fees.

Once the request is received, monthly payment coupons will be mailed to the address on file within 30 days.
Disagree with the notice?
Taxpayers who disagree with the balance due notice have the right to protest the amount due. The protest must be filed within 30 days from the date of the notice.
