Exciting New Tax Relief Opportunity: The Taxpayer Relief Initiative

The IRS announced The Taxpayer Relief Initiative on November 2nd. The program is designed to provide relief to individuals and business owners who are unable to pay their taxes due to the Coronavirus crisis. Although the IRS has always had payment installments and offers in compromise as possible options for struggling taxpayers, this program offers another opportunity considering this unprecedented year with the pandemic.

Key Details You Need to Know About The Taxpayer Relief Initiative:

  • Taxpayers qualified for short term payment plans can have 180 days to resolve their tax liabilities versus the typical 120 days.
  • The IRS has promised more flexibility for taxpayers temporarily unable to make payments on an offer in compromise or installment agreement.
  • Instead of waiting for taxpayers to default on their agreements, the IRS will add tax balances to existing agreements for individuals and business owners who have gone out of business.
  • If individuals owe less than $250,000, they may be qualified for an installment agreement without providing financial statements when their monthly payment proposal is completed appropriately.
  • If an individual who only owes 2019 taxes and less than $250,000, they may qualify for an installment agreement without having a notice of a federal tax lien filed by the IRS.
  • Qualified taxpayers using direct debit payment installments may be able to request lower monthly payments and change their payment due dates.
  • Upon request by a taxpayer unable to pay, the IRS will grant a temporary halt in collections.
