Gig workers like Uber drivers and DoorDashers may qualify for tax penalty forgiveness under the IRS’ recently expanded eligibility rules. Check your eligibility below.

IRS Expanding Tax Forgiveness Programs

Gig workers like Uber drivers and DoorDashers often forget to report their 1099 earnings each tax season, leading them into thousands of dollars of tax debt. 

However, the IRS is expanding tax forgiveness programs in 2024 that can help gig workers get their tax penalties forgiven.

“The IRS should be looking out for taxpayers, and this penalty relief is a common-sense approach to help people in this situation,” explained IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel.

If you owe back taxes to the IRS, you could qualify for significant tax debt relief – whether you’re a Gig worker or not.

New Penalty Relief Initiative

This year, IRS officials updated the eligibility rules around tax penalty relief, making it easier to reduce or even completely wipe out tax debts for those meeting the updated qualifications.

Program expansions aim to provide penalty relief to taxpayers who were unable to stay fully compliant during the pandemic disruptions. Small business owners and independent contractors can now receive higher levels of tax debt forgiveness.

Even if you have multiple years of unfiled returns or owe substantial amounts to the IRS, you may still be eligible to have certain penalties and interest charges erased.

Save more than just money with the Fresh Start Plan.

You’ll save time, effort, and frustration.

Save months of wasted effort.

Negotiating a tax settlement typically takes months to complete, and some resolutions can take up to two years. Most taxpayers spend over 75 minutes on hold when calling the IRS.

Our three-step plan streamlines the tax resolution process, matching you with a team of tax relief specialists who contact the IRS on your behalf and minimize your time to resolution.

Leave the legwork to our verified experts.

Applying for Fresh Start Programs like Offer in Compromise or Currently Non-Collectible status requires dozens of hours of specialized legwork by tax experts. Having unfiled tax returns greatly exacerbates this process. Even a reasonable Installment Agreement can require nimble negotiation best performed by a tax attorney or enrolled agent. 

Our three-step plan will match you with a tax relief provider who handles all of the legwork for you: filing all unfiled returns, preparing your application, and communicating with your IRS agent.

Get the relief you need. Not the headache you don’t.

The IRS only accepts 36% of applications for Offer in Compromise, the relief program that can significantly reduce your tax debt. Even if you meet the program criteria, there is still a high chance the IRS will reject your proposal.

Your provider will guide you to a relief program that balances maximum debt reduction with the best chance of approval. Our preferred providers have successfully resolved thousands of cases – they know precisely which resolution proposals the IRS will likely approve or deny.

Your relief, guaranteed.

Resolve your tax issue with confidence, knowing that our partners provide multiple guarantees to ensure IRS-compliant filing, accurate calculations, and most importantly – your tax issues resolved.

Our partners are BBB accredited and possess IRS Power of Attorney in all 50 states.
