With the economy in recession, the Internal Revenue Service is offering a new leniency program for taxpayers who are in a financial struggle.
The program is geared toward people who have paid their taxes in the past, but are now having a financial hardship.
It offers to waive late penalties, negotiate new payment plans, and postpone asset seizures for delinquent taxpayers.
Just as long as they make a good-faith effort to settle their tax debts.
The IRS doesn't know how many taxpayers might take advantage of the program.
However, millions could be eligible.
