IRS People First Initiative
The People First Initiative is now expired. Taxpayers who have a payment agreement should contact a representative using the number on their notice.
The IRS announced the People First Initiative to limit enforcement actions and postpone payment due under existing tools to enable taxpayers to pay taxes when they are unable to pay the full amount of their liability. The tools, Installment Payment Agreements and Offers in Compromise, are suspended and will not default, effective from April 1 to July 15, 2020.
