Have you talked directly with the IRS? You may find they're easier to work with than you'd expect. Most ppl freak OUT when they see the "audit letter" stating you've underpaid, and stick their heads in the sand. Don't do this! CALL THEM. They may be able to arrange payments than you CAN make.  Every time I've had to call they are exceptionally friendly and helpful - seriously.

A neighbor got a letter saying he owed over $70,000 and after meeting with a tax consultant (he had unpaid taxes, too) things got worked out to where he only owed $3500 and, since his work was seasonal, the payment arrangement was quite aceptable. Consult with IRS right away.
