What is the Offer in Compromise?

2) Compromise with IRS on an amount if they accept your offer.

Major Points to Cover

1) An estimated 20,000 are approved per year.
2) It takes about a year to complete the process to prepare the Offer in Compromise forms with evidence documented, for IRS to process the documents, and complete the process.
3) Ask to be on a non-collect status while waiting or a small, very small installment plan while waiting if it will not cause too much of a burden.
4) The fee for the IRS to review your Offer in Compromise is $150 unless you qualify for the fee waiver at Form 656-A.
5) You will need to file all tax returns on time for the next five years (consider it a probation period).
6) They will want a settlement of at least, or more than, the reasonable collection potential which can be FIGURED by reviewing details. Or just allow our office to assist you. Call Rica at 916-628-2846.
