IRS Tax Relief - Offer in Compromise

There is Good News and Bad News regarding IRS Collection activity. 

Let's Get the Bad News Out of the Way - We all know that the Federal (as well as most of the States) Government is broke. The IRS has been aggressively pursuing the collection of back tax debt. This is illustrated in the high volume of tax liens and tax levies that have been executed. 

As the economy has soured, the IRS has filed an increasing number of liens on property owned by delinquent taxpayers. The IRS filed nearly 1.1 million liens in the budget year that ended in September 2010, compared with 426,000 in 2001.


In fact, Flat Fee Tax Relief, has seen an uptick in the number of troubled taxpayers who have seen their wages, paychecks and Social Security Benefits levied. Never before have we witnessed levies on taxpayers that owe as little as $1,000.00. 

Now for the Good News. 

Flat Fee Tax Relief now guarantees that an IRS Wage Levy will be released and stopped in 1 day/24 hours. Flat Fee Tax Relief has increased its proficiency in saving your paycheck. You do not have to suffer from an IRS Garnishment that is seizing your wages, paycheck, or your Security Benefit.

You can't get any better than that. 

More Good News. 

The IRS has eased its rules regarding the acceptance of an IRS Settlement through the IRS Offer in Compromise program.

Let us repeat that. The IRS has announced an easing of the rules regarding an IRS Settlement through the Offer in Compromise program. 

"These steps are in the best interest of both taxpayers and the tax system," Doug Shulman, the IRS Commissioner said. "People will have a better chance to stay current on their taxes and keep their financial house in order. We all benefit if that happens." 

The IRS believes the changes "will help people trying to get right with their taxes and we, at the IRS, think it strikes the right balance to protect the interests of the government," said Shulman, the IRS commissioner. 

OFFER in COMPROMISE - The IRS is expanding a new streamlined Offer in Compromise (OIC) program to cover a larger group of struggling taxpayers. This streamlined Offer in Compromise (OIC) is being expanded to allow taxpayers with annual incomes up to $100,000 with tax liabilities of less than $50,000 to participate.

Previously, any taxpayer who was earning $100,000.00 was automatically refused an IRS Settlement via the Offer in Compromise program. 

An IRS Settlement via an Offer in Compromise will not be accepted if the IRS believes that the liability can be paid in full as a lump sum or through a payment agreement.  The IRS looks at the taxpayer’s income and assets to make a determination regarding the taxpayer’s ability to pay. 

Because so many taxpayers no longer have any equity in their homes and that available credit to re-finance your home has dried up, it becomes ever less likely that a back tax debt will ever be paid in full. 

An Offer in Compromise remains a complicated formula based on your income, assets and allowable expenses (rent/mortgage, car payment, health insurance, court-ordered support payments, etc.). More taxpayers can settle their tax debt for less than they owe should they meet certain income and debt requirements. 

Only one of three conditions must be met to qualify a taxpayer for IRS Debt Relief consideration of an IRS Offer in Compromise (OIC) Tax Settlement: 

Doubt as to Collectability — You can show that the IRS Tax Debt is likely uncollectable in full by the IRS under any circumstances. Doubt exists that you, the taxpayer, could ever pay the full amount of your tax liability owed within the remainder of the statutory period for collection. In other words, you do not have the money to pay the back tax debt. 

Doubt as to Liability — You can show the reason for doubt that the assessed tax liability is correct. A legitimate doubt exists that the assessed tax liability is correct. this is the least available action. 

Effective Tax Administration — You do not contest your IRS Tax Debt liability or collectability but can demonstrate extenuating or special circumstances that the collection of your IRS Tax Debt would "create an economic hardship or would be unfair and inequitable." This is primarily used by individuals that are elderly and receiving Social Security or may be disabled and receiving Social Security Disability / SSDI benefits or may have special extenuating circumstances. 

If you are looking to settle your tax liability with the IRS, it will most like be due to "doubt as to collectability". You simply cannot pay. 

The Offer in Compromise program is not a "give-a-way" program by the IRS. The IRS will try and discourage you by sending your documents back to you as "non-processable". The IRS will ask for further documents and if you are late in providing these documents, the IRS will "kick" your Offer out. The IRS will not be holding your hand during the Offer in Compromise process.

The reason why most IRS Settlements are rejected by the IRS is not that of the merit of the Offer. The Offer in Compromise high rejection rate is due to individuals trying to maneuver the IRS system on their own


The IRS is still the worlds largest and most powerful collection agency. The IRS is tasked with collecting money for the Federal Government. The IRS didn't suddenly become "warm and fuzzy". 

It is important that citizens pay their taxes, however, there is a Taxpayer's Bill of Rights. If you cannot, under the IRS guidelines, pay your tax debt, your tax liability can be settled. 


If you qualify to settle your back tax debt with the IRS through the IRS Offer in Compromise (OIC) program, you can save thousands and thousands of dollars in taxes, penalties, and interest. Taxpayers can negotiate settlements on all types of taxes, including most payroll taxes, penalties, and interest. It is the closest thing to amnesty that the federal government offers in connection with back tax debt.
