If you're worried about qualifying for an IRS tax settlement, there's some good news. The IRS has introduced its Fresh Start program to help taxpayers owing $50,000 or less, qualify for an installment agreement.

The program has also expanded access to OIC settlements to larger groups of taxpayers.

Additionally, the Fresh Start program has extended the time (up to 72 months) in which taxpayers must repay their balance. Furthermore, the program has increased the amount taxpayers can owe before the IRS will file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien.

Different Types of IRS Tax Settlements Get help with an IRS tax settlement

1. Offer in Compromise (OIC)

An offer in compromise (OIC) is an agreement between the taxpayer and the IRS to settle the taxpayers' tax liabilities for a lesser amount than the amount owed.

To qualify for an OIC settlement, taxpayers must make an offer to the IRS that is equal to or greater than the most they could collect from you without enforcing financial hardship.

Taxpayers must also be current with all filing and payment requirements in order to qualify.

2. First-Time Penalty Abatement (FTA)

A first-time penalty abatement (FTA) is an administrative waiver that abolishes all or part of any tax penalties incurred and any interest owed on those penalties.

In order to qualify for an FTA settlement, the taxpayer must meet the filing and payment compliance criteria and must have had no penalties (bar estimated tax penalties) for the last three years.

3. Partial Payment Installment Agreement (PPIA)

A partial payment installment agreement (PPIA) is a payment plan between you and the IRS whereby you repay your taxes, without repaying the full debt owed, over a certain period of time. The lowest repayment plan is $25 per month. To qualify for a PPIA settlement, taxpayers must provide complete and accurate financial information for review.
