- Offer in Compromise - The IRS realizes that "life happens." Sometimes a taxpayer will end up with a back tax debt that can never be paid, especially now, during these economic times. The IRS has a settlement program called an Offer in Compromise which is a "win-win" for both the taxpayer as well as the IRS. The IRS will collect on the back tax debt, close a file and the taxpayer is brought in to compliance by filing their delinquent tax returns and paying a reduced amount. The IRS settlement is often a small fraction of the total amount of back tax debt. The Offer in Compromise process is complicated. The taxpayer must meet certain requirements and show an inability to pay the full amount of taxes owed. There is "Good News." In February 2011, the IRS expanded the Offer in Compromise program to make more taxpayers eligible, including individuals who earn up to $100,000 per year.
- Currently not Collectible - For those taxpayers who are on a fixed income (Social Security or Social Security Disability / SSDI), or are hourly wage earners of modest means, who are experiencing economic hardship, you may declared to be Currently not Collectible. If it can be shown to the IRS that you cannot pay the IRS anything without it creating a hardship for you, the IRS may declare you to be Currently not Collectible and the IRS will cease collections against you. You will be placed in a no-collection status and the Statute of Limitations will keep on running out. Currently not Collectible status usually runs for a period of 18 to 24 months before the IRS will re-evaluate your financial situation. It is quite possible that you may never pay a dime of your back tax debt.
- Penalty Abatement - If you can show the IRS an inability to pay the full amount of taxes and penalties, the IRS may abate some of the penalties that have been added to your tax debt.This would allow you to pay the tax owed along with the interest. Interest cannot be abated. Your tax penalties may also be abated due to what the IRS calls "reasonable cause." "Reasonable cause" could be anything from divorce to health issues that may have contributed to your back tax problem.
- IRS Installment Agreement - If you do not qualify for an Offer in Compromise or to be placed in Currently not Collectible status but you still cannot pay the IRS your back tax debt, the IRS offers an Installment Agreement option. An Installment Agreement is a negotiated payment plan that will make paying your back tax debt manageable. Some taxpayers may qualify for a Partial Payment Installment Agreement where smaller payments are made which total less than your original back tax debt. An Installment Agreement that is agreed upon must take into account the amount of time left on the Statute of Limitations as well as your financial situation. Any "dummy" can agree to a very bad Installment Agreement with the IRS. It takes knowledge and experience to negotiate a good one.
