Struggling with Paying Your Taxes? Let IRS Help You Get a Fresh Start.

The Internal Revenue Service’s Fresh Start initiative makes it easier for individual and small business taxpayers to pay back taxes and avoid tax liens. The Fresh Start initiative fundamentally changes IRS Collection practices in the following areas:

Notice of Federal Tax Liens
The Fresh Start Initiative increased the IRS Notice of Federal Tax Lien filing threshold from $5,000 to $10,000; however, Notices of Federal Tax Liens may still be filed on amounts less than $10,000 when circumstances warrant.

Installment Agreements
Learn your options for making monthly payments on taxes owed to the IRS.

Offer in Compromise
Settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe.
