IRS Fresh Start Program

The Fresh Start Program from the IRS is a great way to start off fresh with the IRS and reduce your total taxes owed by a considerable amount. We'll help you by excluding assets and claiming expenses that are reasonable, necessary living costs which will allow for an agreement more favorable than what's available through normal methods - both individuals or businesses can take advantage of the Fresh Start Program.

Offer in Compromise

If you have a lot of tax debt and want to get out from under it, consider using the Illinois Offer in Compromise program. This offer allows for payments on your debts with an upfront lump sum payment that can lower overall taxable income. Not everyone qualifies, and there is a considerable amount of paperwork that needs to be filed. Our clients have over a 90% success rate when they work with us while those who try on their own typically have a 50% success rate.

Bank Levy & Wage Garnishment Release

We know that you need a reliable source of income, so we will immediately work to stop the levies placed on your bank as well as release a wage garnishment.

Penalty & Interest Abatement

The IRS pressures people to pay taxes on time by imposing harsh penalties. But if you qualify for an abatement and interest reduction, Lothamer can help significantly reduce your total taxes owed.

Installment Agreement

When you can’t pay taxes owed, setting up an installment agreement can work in your favor. Installment agreements help avoid penalties and interest by setting up payment plans that are a better fit for your financial situation. The process isn’t simple however, and it requires working closely with the IRS or state of Illinois to set up an installation agreement.

Statute of Limitation

The IRS is limited to a 10 year timeframe to collect unpaid taxes, which we can help you use to your advantage avoid by identifying Collection Statute End Dates (CSEDs) for periods in your record. Additionally if there were previous years where tax refunds or stimulus payments are owed - whether big or small – we’ll help you get them. The longer you wait the less likely you will be eligible to receive a refund as they expire after 3 years.


Filing for bankruptcy may seem drastic but eliminating unnecessary costs could prove invaluable down the road. We'll assess if Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 would work best based off what types taxes and penalties will affect your situation.

Currently Not Collectible Status

With the IRS Currently Non-Collectible status, you can often avoid collection efforts while preparing an Offer in Compromise or filing for bankruptcy.
