People First Initiative – Providing Relief to Taxpayers

From April 1 through July 15, 2020 the IRS’s People First Initiative provided taxpayers experiencing COVID-19 related hardships relief from certain collection actions and processes.

Although the PFI ended mid-July, the IRS continues to put people first. While beginning to resume its critical tax administration responsibilities, the IRS will also factor in the wide-ranging impacts of COVID-19 on taxpayers. Additionally, the health and safety of taxpayers and IRS employees remains an important consideration for the Service.
