Get a Fresh Start with the IRS

If paying off your back tax debt seems impossible, the IRS Fresh Start Program may be your key to financial freedom.

The IRS Fresh Start Program & Tax Debt Relief Guide

When faced with a substantial federal tax debt stretching into the thousands of dollars, repaying the money owed can appear overwhelmingly tricky. The inclination to delay addressing this issue is vital, often with the hope of a future day when the burden will feel more manageable. However, that day can be today, thanks to recent enhancements to the IRS Fresh Start initiative. The IRS Fresh Start program now presents an achievable avenue for individuals and businesses grappling with tax debt to find relief and move forward.

The primary objective of the Fresh Start Program is to ease the constraints associated with tax debt, presenting three key alternatives:

  1. Extended Installment Agreements come with simplified procedures tailored for individual taxpayers.
  2. Instalment agreements offer the opportunity to prevent the imposition of a tax lien as long as payments are facilitated through direct debit instalments and the owed amount remains below $25,000. These agreements provide manageable monthly payments but have limitations, such as eligibility criteria and the need for consistent payment.
  3. Expanded rules for the Offer in the Compromise option include excluding specific assets from the calculation used to determine the settlement amount.

The IRS Fresh Start Program offers various payment plan options: short-term, long-term, partial, and instalment agreements.

All of these measures are aimed at assisting those burdened by tax debt to regain their financial footing. Individuals seeking relief from their tax obligations can find a valuable ally in the IRS Fresh Start initiative. Contacting a tax relief company could provide further support for those needing guidance and assistance navigating these options.

These fresh regulations might not be guaranteed to last, as the IRS can modify them independently. To secure the necessary assistance for federal tax liens, consult with Lothamer immediately today.

Secure The Necessary Assistance For Federal Tax Liens And Get A Fresh Start Tax Program:

Effectively capitalizing on the opportunities presented by the Fresh Start Initiative necessitates meticulous attention to intricate details. Numerous taxpayers are denied a resolution about their tax debt due to a lack of awareness regarding what aligns with the IRS’s criteria, either on their part or that of their representatives. A prime example is the diverse methods the IRS permits for ascertaining the fair market value of one’s assets. Failing to grasp acceptable valuation techniques can result in a substantial financial setback, costing thousands of dollars.

It’s essential to recognize that the onus of making an offer lies on you, not the IRS. Consequently, whether your offer will be approved hinges on various factors. While the IRS is unlikely to explicitly communicate if it would entertain a lower offer, historical precedent indicates its reluctance to reject offers on the higher end of the spectrum. This underscores the significance of navigating this process astutely, especially when proving financial hardship to qualify for tax debt relief programs.

Consulting with a tax professional for personalized advice and assistance is crucial to understanding eligibility guidelines and navigating complex IRS programs.

At Lothamer, our seasoned team of CPAs, accomplished tax attorneys, and Enrolled Agents boasts a track record of successfully negotiating hundreds, if not thousands, of Offer in Compromises.
