   Hardship Letter Tax Deferral

I am writing this letter to explain why I am unable to pay my property taxes this year. I have recently fallen upon difficult times financially and would like to request a deferral.

In the last few month my financial situation has become dire due to {the loss of my job, an illness, a death in the family, be specific}. I am no longer to pay for {medical bills, mortgage, etc.} and I am concerned that I will have to {foreclose, file for bankruptcy, etc.}

I am not attempting to avoid paying my necessary debt to society, and I understand that I will owe these taxes next year. I would just like to explain that I am in an unusually difficult position this year and require the deferral in order to get back on my feet.

I am attaching my federal income tax return from last year, as well as my credit card bill from the last two months. I hope they make my position clear.

I appreciate your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon concerning this matter.
