First IRS Increase in Interest Rates since 2011

Posted by taxguru on March 16, 2016

The long streak of IRS charging 3.0% on back taxes will end on April 1, 2016, when it bumps up to 4.0%.

The “good” part of this change is that IRS will also be paying 4.0% interest to taxpayers on refunds from such things as amended tax returns.  That’s a heck of a lot higher than banks are paying on savings accounts.
