The IRS identified activities in different lines of business to monitor instalment payment agreements, obtained time spent on activities through different sequencing systems, determined the work and performance rates of these financial system employees for fiscal years 2013 and 2014, and determined the average annual cost of monitoring phased agreements. Due to the nature of the measures taken by the State, the general public will almost always derive some profit from an activity subject to a user charge. See z.B. Seafarers, 81 F.3d at 184-85 (D.C Cir. 1996). However, as long as the activity confers a certain benefit on an identifiable beneficiary, it is permissible for the Agency to charge a fee to the beneficiary, although the public also enjoys a secondary benefit. See Moteur Mfrs. Ass`n, E.P.A., 20 F.3d 1177, 1180 (D.C Cir. 1994) (“If the Agency grants a certain advantage to an identifiable beneficiary. .
in this case, the service cannot, incidentally, bring an advantage to the community. “) citing Nat`l Cable Television Ass`n v. FCC, 554 F.2d 1094, at 1103 (D.C Cir. 1976). It is permissible for a service for which a user charge is levied to generate a “random public benefit” and it is not necessary for the Agency to lay those public benefits and the specific benefits for the identifiable recipient. Marins, 81 F.3d 183-84 (D.C Cir. 1996). In addition, the benefit to the IRS of collecting unpaid taxes is not an additional benefit to the government, since the IRS would otherwise recover these amounts without the instalment payment agreement. Nevertheless, an agency has the right to charge for services that help a person fulfill their legal obligations. See In Elec. Indus As`n v. FCC, 554 F.2d 1109, 1115 (D.C Cir.
1976). Since communications and telecommunications downtime costs, including paper, postage, and telephone service costs, can be identified under instalment payment agreements, the IRS considered them to be direct costs to the tempering agreement program. As a result, the IRS modified the calculation of the corporate overhead rate to exclude these communications and telecommunications costs from all indirect costs in the calculation of the corporate overhead rate used for the purpose of assigning Corporate Overhead to the adjusted corporate overhead program. The adjusted corporate overhead rate used for the entire tempering agreement program is 60.89 per cent, calculated as follows: the proposal, one of the changes made this year to user charges, reflects the law that federal authorities are required to charge user fees to cover the costs of providing certain services to the public, that bring a particular advantage to the recipient. While some installment payments are increasing, the IRS will continue to offer discounted or free services to low-income taxpayers. Section 6159 authorizes the IRS to enter into a phased agreement with each taxable person, to the extent that the IRS finds that entering into the instalment payment agreement facilitates the collection of all or part of the tax. Section 301.6159-1 (a). Instalment payment agreements are voluntary, and taxpayers can personally request a instalment payment agreement by filling out the corresponding forms and sending them to the IRS online or by phone.
Before entering into a instalment payment agreement, the IRS may examine the taxable person`s financial situation to determine whether such an agreement is appropriate. . . .
