Last Minute Tax Tips

Hi lauroge-

Coming from the IRS, I should avoid providing financial advice but I've read many an article and heard many a financial professional preach against using any retirement account for anything other than retirement---unless you absolutely have to.

That said, an installment agreement for that amount is easy to set-up online. Sounds like you've done some research? You might also qualify for an extra 120 days to pay, generally without interest, if you can full-pay in that time frame.

What's going to cost less in the long run? See above...but might be a good idea to go with what you can afford.
