What is the Fresh Start Initiative?

If you find yourself in trouble with the IRS, don’t panic. There are plenty of options to help you get back on track and settle your tax debt. The Fresh Start Initiative is a solution designed by the IRS that makes it easier for taxpayers to pay their tax debts on an installment agreement. This agreement gives qualified individuals the ability to pay off their taxes in smaller, more manageable amounts over a period of time, with limited penalties. Additionally, the Fresh Start debt program also includes debt reassessment through Offer in Compromise agreements.

How does the Fresh Start Initiative work?

The Fresh Start Initiative can be broken down into two tax debt settlement solutions — installment agreements and the Offer in Compromise (OIC) program. These solutions are designed to make it easier for taxpayers to pay off tax debt while limiting financial burden.
Here’s how they work:

  • Installment Agreements: The taxpayer and the IRS work together to identify a monthly payment plan for the total tax debt owed. This can help reduce tax penalties like tax levies from unpaid taxes, and ultimately, make it more feasible for taxpayers to pay aggressive tax dues.
  • Offer in Compromise (OIC): An OIC agreement is a settlement solution for individuals who face insurmountable tax debt. This compromise can lessen the amount of taxes owed to the IRS.

What are the IRS Fresh Start program requirements?

There are many factors that play into whether you meet IRS Fresh Start tax program qualifications. Some of the most common limitations on the Fresh Start Initiative are:

  • Self-employed individuals must provide proof of a 25% drop in their net income
  • Joint filers cannot earn more than $200,000 a year and single filers cannot earn more than $100,000
  • Your tax balance must be below $50,000 at the end of the year in order to qualify

How do I apply for a Fresh Start with the IRS?

You can apply for a Fresh Start with the IRS directly or with the help of a tax professional. The Fresh Start application can take several months to get approved for if you choose to go it alone. With the help of a Community Tax expert on your side, we can help expedite the process so you can get your Fresh Start debt resolved as soon as possible.
