An IRS Hardship Letter is a formal statement prepared by the taxpayer and sent to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) with the intention to describe a difficult financial situation, ask the government for leniency, and request new payment deadlines. There is a possibility a well-thought letter supported by appropriate documentation will convince the IRS to give the taxpayer another chance to pay their debts without fines and other penalties or delay the payment for a period of time. The government may determine that now you do not have enough financial means to pay with a sufficient letter that confirms your hardship.
