Tax Relief Help

The IRS is committed to providing relief to individuals. Still, this relief has significant limitations, as the person receiving relief must prove to the IRS that they qualify for the IRS Fresh Start Program. Take advice from a professional tax expert to see if you may be eligible for tax relief from the Internal Revenue Service.

You must submit a tax return every year to see what you owe to the IRS. Your tax returns determine the debt to the IRS, but your liability may be reduced. You may qualify for relief via an IRS payment plan due to a disaster like a hurricane or flood. There is also tax relief for somebody who can no longer pay their tax bill (including tax payments on self-employment income) due on April 15th.

The IRS provides various tax reliefs for those affected by the coronavirus. You can reduce the tax you pay by using the coronavirus aid, relief, and economic help provided in disaster situations. A tax professional can tell you if you qualify for help for the coronavirus. They will also be able to provide the IRS with the information needed to determine if you qualify as tax-exempt.

Could not recommend Clean Slate Tax more for my tax relief! Highly knowledgeable and professional. They helped in a very difficult situation and handled it perfectly. Fees are reasonable and totally worth it.

Clean Slate Tax saved me over $100,000! Not only that, they released a levy on my bank account. This company was worth every penny! I would suggest using them. Their professionalism, personal touch, availability and communication were remarkable. USE THEM!

Joe is the absolute BEST!! He is very knowledgeable, helpful, compassionate, friendly, and very easy to talk to. Everyone at Clean Slate that I talked to was so understanding and nice. They made me feel comfortable sharing very private financial issues that I have a hard time talking about. They were very patient with me paying them for their services. I could not have asked for a better company! (...)

From the first contact with Clean Slate to my final day EVERYTHING was transparent, professional and incredibly friendly, straight forward and honest.
No false promises and they kept us in the loop all the time. They promised no more than they could deliver and delivered everything they set out to do.
A pay garnishment and HUGE tax burden was lifted and settled, as they had originally planned.

-R Perreault - 02/05/2020

I’m sure that the good folks at Clean Slate had heard it before....but for me, it was was an accident. That I didn’t file tax returns for 5 years. 2 family members, the 2 I loved the most, and the longest, passed within a year of each other, and it broke me. For the next 4 years. Every time I sat to do my returns, my mind went dead. And along the way, I had been hearing so many ads, “Got a tax problem? Call us”(...)

Tax Credits 

A tax credit is a form of tax relief that reduces tax owed by people that are jointly and individually responsible for the tax and any interest.

Deductions are made for a number of different reasons:

  • Medical bills and employer medicare tax on such wages.
  • Savings accounts.
  • Charitable donations.
  • Business car usage.
  • Home office expenses.

The data on employment tax relief shows that relief to taxpayers is available for new employers but the IRS is very particular about who qualifies. Employers can get relief on a variety of tax, the social security tax, for example, can be deferred by taxpayers before the bill is enacted by the IRS.

Businesses having problems with the coronavirus crisis qualify for tax relief from the internal revenue service, see news or visit for more information.

Tax Forgiveness

Back in 2011, taxpayers were given relief under the fresh start initiative. This allows them to pay less money to the IRS than what they owe. For more info, look up tax relief on the IRS’ website. The tax relief is part of a coordinated effort to give taxpayers more options for relief from liability.You need to see if you are entitled to relief by filing forms about your financial situation.

Filing form 8857, request for innocent spouse relief provides tax relief in response to tax debts owed by a spouse. For clarification, this is related to the relief you are entitled to if you do not believe that you are liable for the tax debt of your spouse or ex-spouse.

If a late penalty is made against taxpayers, they may be entitled to relief under notice. A late payment penalty notice from the IRS that has an abatement policy applicable may not need to be paid. If it is a first time penalty, the IRS may offer tax relief. If there is a mistake or addition to tax for failure to file the forms on time and additions to tax with respect to such postponed filing, you may be entitled to relief.

Tax relief companies can give you a guide on penalty relief so you can understand the relief provided.

If you file bankruptcy before the debt is levied by the IRS, you may apply for tax relief for that money. You may get relief via an offer in compromise or relief via an irs payment plan. Part of the debt will be paid installments while the rest will be written off because you don’t owe as much as the full bill if the bankruptcy is accepted.

Tax Exclusions

There is also tax relief for certain types of income. A reduction will be accepted if the income qualifies for free tax status. There are a number of reasons why your income may qualify for liability from tax.

A tax consultation can give you advice about the relief available and how to reduce your debt to the IRS. Even people who previously provided the IRS with their banking info can still receive relief with the support of a tax consultant.

If you want to learn more about special tax relief, relief to taxpayers available on a day-to-day basis or for information about additional relief that may be available to you, see somebody like a tax specialist from community tax organizations.
