Forgiveness for those who keep their promises

The IRS Fresh Start Program is for people who have properly filed their current and back taxes.

You need to commit to paying on time.

The important thing is that you intend to pay your debt – and that this is the first time you need tax relief help. If you are unemployed for over 30 days, you might avoid penalties altogether and get an extension on filing time too.

There are some basics to qualify

It doesn’t matter if you are an individual or a corporate taxpayer. In general, to qualify, you need a tax debt of less than $50,000 and a 25% drop in your net income.

If you are an individual taxpayer, you must earn less than $100,000.

Easy Payments

There are a few different payment arrangements available under this program. For example, some schemes allow you to conveniently spread your payment over 6 years or have a direct debit withdrawn monthly.

Sometimes, you can come to an arrangement and pay less than the original debt.

Don’t let the financial fallout get worse.

Depending on your income, the value of your liquid assets, and your personal circumstances, the IRS needs your application for the program immediately.

Each day that goes by increases the interest you owe on your debt or the risk of having your assets seized.

There are heavy penalties for not paying your taxes.

  • What is the Fresh Start Program?

    In 2011, the Federal Government clamped down on the IRS to relieve taxpayers from tough stances that compounded interest and penalties. Unfortunately, their rigorous methods made tax debt very hard to pay off. The Fresh Start Program, or the Fresh Start Initiative, aims to provide tax relief and simplify tax debt repayment.
