Sorry, but your taxpayer rights suck! I fought them for years, but ultimately, they will get their money or they will file a lein (if you own property) or garnish your paycheck. Talk to them and try to work out a reasonable monthly schedule and stick to it. Don't ignore their notices. Call them. Even though they don't care about your situation, there's no way out. Bankruptcy won't affect their collection efforts either. They don't let up because they know sooner or later your financial situation will probably change and they can get paid. I fought them for ten years. 80% of what I finally paid them was interest and penalties.
But, they are paid, my life went on and yes, I hate them passionatly to this day.
Good luck.
