Offer in Compromise – Tax Settlements

Flat Fee Tax Service Procedures – IRS Tax Debt Help 

How our IRS Tax Resolution Team Will Settle and Negotiate your case with the Internal Revenue Service:

1. Our IRS Tax Attorneys immediately send a power of attorney to the IRS letting them know that you, the financially struggling taxpayer, have an income tax representative. You will never have to speak to the IRS.

2. Our IRS Tax Attorneys and our income tax preparation department will make sure all your tax returns are filed and current. If your income tax returns are not up to date, the IRS will refuse to work your case. This is the leverage that they use to get you compliant. Our expert tax relief team can pull tax transcripts, file and prepare your tax returns within days, even if you have lost your tax records.

3. If the IRS requires a current financial statement our IRS Tax Attorney, working with you, will secure a required 433-A (IRS financial statement), verify the income and expenses and work out a settlement agreement. The IRS will require a closing settlement method for each case.

An IRS Income Tax Settlement Agreements can be in different forms:

a. An IRS Hardship Settlement – Cases usually go into a 3 year suspended status because of an inability to pay. This is formally called currently Currently not Collectible or CNC. Your case will go into a hardship status because the taxpayer does not have the income coming in to meet his/her current expenses. The IRS will use the National Standards Program to assess hardship of a financially struggling taxpayer.

b. IRS Payment Agreements – Cases can be closed with agreed upon monthly installment payments to the IRS. We will review the different programs the IRS uses for the lowest possible amount required. Remember this: Anyone can agree to a very bad IRS Installment Agreement. An IRS Tax Relief Professional will get you the best deal possible.

c. Offer in Compromise (OIC). There are three types of IRS Settlements:

The IRS may accept an Offer in Compromise based on three grounds:

1. Doubt as to Collect Ability – Doubt exists that the taxpayer could ever pay the full amount of tax liability owed within the remainder of the statutory period for collection.

2. Doubt as to Liability – A legitimate doubt exists that the assessed tax liability is correct. Possible reasons to submit a doubt as to liability offer include:

(1) the examiner made a mistake interpreting the law,

(2) the examiner failed to consider the taxpayer’s evidence or

(3) the taxpayer has new evidence.

3. Effective Tax Administration / Exceptional Circumstances – There is no doubt that the tax is correct and there is potential to collect the full amount of the tax owed, but an exceptional circumstance exists that would allow the IRS to consider a settlement through the Offer in Compromise program. To be eligible for a settlement compromise on this basis, a taxpayer must demonstrate that the collection of the tax would create an economic hardship or would be unfair and inequitable

4. We review with our clients how they want to settle their case. We get them an agreement based on their current financial needs.

The only settlement circumstance you should be concerned with is “Doubt as to Collectability.

How Much Will the IRS Settle For | Flat Fee Tax Service | San Diego

The average amount that the IRS settles for in an offer in compromise is currently $6,629.  Sounds good, does it not? If only an IRS settlement was that easy, every taxpayer would be submitting IRS settlements, right?

The tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Service provide valuable IRS tax debt help at a very affordable fee. Our teams are located in San Diego, CA and Clearwater, FL.

Offer in Compromise information: In 2014, the IRS received 68,000 Offers in Compromise submissions from taxpayers. The IRS accepted 27,000 of those settlement offers. The IRS accepts approximately 40% of the settlement offers submitted. Our tax professionals expect an explosion of IRS settlement submissions in the coming year due to COVID-19.


The total amount accepted in all Offers in Compromise in 2014 was $179 million which is an average income tax settlement of $6,629.

The above statistics do not mean that a financially struggling taxpayer will settle with the IRS for that amount, or that there is a 40% chance your IRS settlement offer will be accepted.

The IRS uses a very specific and complicated formula in determining the settlement value of an Offer in Compromise and whether or not to accept or reject it.  Your success depends on how a taxpayer fits into the IRS formula.

The Offer in Compromise program formula works like this:

  1. The IRS will figure out how much they think that a taxpayer can pay them every month in an installment agreement. They do this by asking for your pay stubs or, if you are self-employed, a recent profit and loss statement from your business.
  2. The IRS wants to know about your monthly living expenses.  Some of those expenses such as your housing and utilities, car payment(s) and food/clothing will subject to IRS limitations. The IRS calls these limitations Collection Financial Standards, often referred to as allowable living expenses. The IRS is trying to create more cash flow than the struggling taxpayer will actually have by limiting the expenses to amounts the IRS thinks are reasonable.

The taxpayer’s monthly income, minus the allowable living expenses, equals the taxpayer’s monthly cash flow.  The IRS is going to put a value on the cash flow for purposes of determining the Offer in Compromise settlement value.

If the taxpayer can pay the IRS the offered settlement within five months after acceptance, the IRS values your monthly cash flow by multiplying it by a factor of 12. $200 of monthly cash flow will equate to an offered settlement valuation of $2,400.

If the taxpayer is unable to pay the settlement in full within five months, the IRS will grant you 24 months payment terms. However, your monthly cash flow ($200/month in our example) would be multiplied by a factor of 24, increasing the settlement offer to $4,800. The IRS will give the taxpayer a discount for paying the IRS the offered settlement sooner rather than later.

After determining the value of the settlement offer, the IRS will then turn to a valuation of the taxpayer’s assets, and add that to the value of your cash flow.  How much is your “stuff” worth?  Your car, house, retirement plan?  Subtract any loans to arrive at equity, and in most cases, reduce that by 20% to get to your IRS valuation.

Add your cash flow (multiplied by a factor of 12 or 24) to your asset value, and you have your proposed IRS settlement amount.

The taxpayer’s success with an offer in compromise is based on a full understanding of the IRS investigative process into the income, living expenses and assets of the taxpayer. It is not a one size fits all situation. The amount of one taxpayer’s settlement has no bearing on the success of another taxpayer.  The IRS does not have a set percentage of settlement to the amount owed.  

The taxpayer’s settlement offer depends on convincing the IRS that your financial situation is dismal and that the IRS will never get paid after applying their internal guidelines.
