Help Candice Get Out of Tax Debt

Hello friends,  I really hate to publicly ask for anything, but I have found myself in a somewhat desperate position. I've been a full-time freelance journalist for over a year now after getting laid off from my part-time job in 2018. Though I have been able to merely survive as a freelancer all this time, taxes remain difficult to pay off when I'm simultaneously paying household bills, state insurance, and a host of other living expenses. Freelancers are paid tax-free flat rates, which means it's up to us to not only use the money to pay our bills, but put some aside for tax time the next year.  Unfortunately, I accumulated more tax debt that I was able to save up, and I am asking for your help to pay back what I owe the IRS. I think I can come up with the remainder of what I owe, but $6,000 is out of my capacity. And I'd rather pay what I owe in full by the deadline of April 15 than pay the IRS back in increments plus interest.  This debt payoff would also mean that I wouldn't have to dip into my household budget and sacrifice electricity, gas, groceries, rent, etc. I would be overwhelmingly grateful if you could donate. But if that's not possible, I'd love it if you could share this post. Again, I really despise that I have to ask for help, but I am in such a tight spot as I continue to look for full-time work to hopefully avoid having to be in this position next year.  Thank you so much for taking the time out to read this and any help you can provide.
