IRS Fresh Start Program
The IRS Fresh Start Program was created to help people who owe back taxes but are struggling to find a way to pay. It is important to note that the term fresh start program is just that, a program that has a number of tax relief options that can be used to help taxpayers reduce, pay down and pay off tax debts. Each of the options in the fresh start program comes with its own sets benefits, rules, regulations and qualifying requirements. Below we describe the most common benefits and the qualifications to take advantage of an IRS fresh start program.
IRS Offer in Compromise
An Offer in Compromise (OIC) allows a taxpayer to settle back taxes due for less than what is owed. In short, based upon your qualifications and ability to repay your existing tax debt, a reduced offer to pay off the debt is presented to the IRS. If and when an Offer is accepted by the IRS, making full payment of that reduced offer amount wipes clean the principal amount owed along with all interest and penalties.
IRS Lien Withdrawal or Subordination
Under certain circumstances, taxpayers can submit an application to have their tax lien withdrawn or subordinated. In addition, the IRS will generally not seek a tax lien when a taxpayer owes less than $10,000.
IRS Installment Agreement
Taxpayers owing less than $50,000 may be eligible to pay their taxes due monthly over a six-year period although interest continues to accrue. Taxpayers who owe more than $50,000 or need more than six years to pay off their tax liability are required to provide extensive documentation.
The Fresh Start Tax Relief program includes some of the most powerful tax relief options ever offered by the IRS but you must be in strict compliance before you can even be considered.
Who Qualifies for Relief Under the IRS Fresh Start Program and How Do I Apply for it?
Each tax relief option within the Fresh Start Program requires its own specific qualifications which generally consists of the taxpayer providing highly specific and accurate financial forms prepared with accuracy under the penalty of perjury along with substantiating documentation. But the IRS will not even consider you for relief offered under the Fresh Start Program, unless you are found to be current and compliant with your taxes. Therefore, you must have all past tax returns filed and correct, all current year estimated payments paid up to date, all current year payroll tax deposits made and quarterly tax returns filed.
