A form one files with the IRS when one agrees to pay back taxes in installments. That is, in Form 433-D, one agrees to pay a certain amount each month until the total tax liability is paid. One must include direct debit payment information on the form.
IRS Form 433-D is also known as the Installment Agreement. It is used by taxpayers who are unable to pay the whole amount of their imposed taxes.
There are two pages for Form 433-D: the IRS copy and the taxpayer’s copy. They are identical so after filling out the first page of the form, copy the information to the second page.
Name and Address of the Taxpayer(s)
Provide your full name and residential address.
Social Security or Employer Identification Number (SSN/EIN)
Provide your SSN or EIN.
Provide your home phone number and/or work, cell, or business number.

Provide the account number of the checking account from which the IRS will withdraw your payment. The first two digits of the routing number must be 01 through 12 or 21 through 32.
