The IRS Fresh Start program makes it easier for taxpayers to pay back taxes and avoid tax liens. Even small business taxpayers may benefit from Fresh Start.
- The IRS will generally not file a Federal Tax Lien until the taxpayer owns $10,000
- When a taxpayer meets certain requirements and pays off their tax debt, the IRS may withdraw a filed Notice of Federal Tax Lien. Taxpayers must request this in writing using Form 12277 – Application for Withdrawal.
- Some Taxpayers may qualify to have their lien notice withdrawn if they are paying their tax debt through a Direct Debt installment agreement.
- individuals that owe up to $50,000 can pay through direct debit payments for six years. The IRS may ask for one of two forms: either a Collection Information Statement, Form 433-A or Form 433-F
Offers in Compromise
- An Offer in Compromise allows a taxpayer to settle their tax debt for less than the full amount. Fresh Start expanded and streamlined the OIC program. The program is now available to a larger group of taxpayers. It looks at several factors including the taxpayers income, assets and expenses to make a decision regarding the taxpayer’s ability to pay.
Some questions the IRS will ask are:
- Are you in an open bankruptcy proceeding?
- Have you filed all required federal tax returns?
- Have you made all required estimated tax payments?
- If you are self-employed and have employees, have you submitted all required federal tax deposits?
An Offer in Compromise – OIC – is the only way for qualifying taxpayers to permanently settle their tax debt, interest and penalties for less than the amount they owe. Our clients have erased from $20,000-$940,000 of their individual and business IRS tax debt. The OIC process requires the help of a CPA to call the IRS directly on the client’s behalf. Jay Allen Finn, will act as a liaison between the taxpayer and the IRS to determine the best possible settlement. In fact, Jay is a former IRS Agent and has represented clients for 37 years, winning 95% of the offers he files on the front line and the rest on appeal. He will help you qualify for the best possible offer allowed by law.
