IRS Interest Rates Continue To Rise

Posted by taxguru on May 20, 2022

Unlike most State tax agencies, which don’t ever change the interest rates that they charge on late tax payments (Arkansas has always been 10%) or adjust them annually (California, et al), IRS modifies its rates every three months to stay in sync with the overall financial markets.

As anyone would have expected, IRS has just announced that, as of July 1, it will be bumping up the rate it will be charging to 5% from the current 4%.

Here is their press release: IRS interest rates increase for the third quarter of 2022

If you want to consider a good side to this, besides charging taxpayers more on late tax payments, this also means that IRS will be paying taxpayers more for delayed refunds. Those millions of people who still have tax returns stuck in the IRS backlog of unprocessed returns will be earning much more from IRS than any banks are currently paying on savings accounts.
