Hardship letter to IRS is a letter sent to the tax collecting body and informing them that you are unable to pay the tax liability you are charge for this year, this will only delay the payment of the tax but will not remove your due tax from the past. Here is a sample:

Income Tax 2014-2015

Dear Sir/Ma’am,

I am writing this letter for the lack of payment regarding my income tax for this year in which I have lack the enough funds for paying it. from the past months I have enrolled in a housing loan in which I need to pay the bank every month of $4,000, also my wife got pregnant and delivered our first son and I needed to settle the hospital bill which cost $40,000 because of the long stay of my son in the hospital as he is premature and needed close monitoring at that time. I enclosed my receipts and bills to support my claim. I am just a School teacher at a local school in our place; I cannot afford any more expenses from the past months as it is only precise in the needs of my family.

I know that a tax levy may be charge against me at this time so I am pleading for hardship and for your kind consideration. Please contact me at this number 3874-28937 for my application, don’t hesitate to call me as I need a reply eagerly. Thank you.

Yours truly,

Mr. Doo Little
