If you owe back taxes to the IRS, you may be able to settle the tax debt for less money with an offer in compromise. The IRS Offer in Compromise may be just the right IRS tax resolution you need. It is an out of court agreement between the IRS and the taxpayer that negotiates a resolution to the taxpayer’s liability, while placing collection efforts on hold. The Internal Revenue Service has the authority to settle or compromise federal tax liabilities by accepting less than full payment under certain circumstances. These circumstances are:
- Doubt as to liability – Doubt exists that the assessed tax is correct.
- Doubt as to collectibility – Doubt exists that you could ever pay the full amount of tax owed.
- Effective tax administration – Economic hardship which present little chance of repayment.
If you qualify for an Offer in Compromise and meet the IRS criteria, our veteran Tax Attorneys, Enrolled Agents, and Tax Specialists will contact the IRS for you and negotiate your Offer in Compromise settlement. The negotiations usually center on the proper valuation of your assets, accurate information about your monthly income, and living expenses.
