What is an Offer in Compromise? | Flat Fee Tax Service

Offer in Compromise – Tax Settlement – Settle with the IRS for Less

The IRS has a tax settlement program known as an Offer in Compromise (OIC) which provides financially distressed taxpayers an opportunity to settle their tax debts, including interest and penalties, for a lump sum which is less than the total amount of your tax debt. Some tax debt companies advertise (usually on late night cable tv) this as if it is a brand new or limited time program. In fact an Offer in Compromise has been around since the 1954 version of the Internal Revenue Code. It is true, however, that over the years the IRS has, at least based upon its official guidelines, become more lenient. Nevertheless, except for cases where the taxpayer is truly and irreparably broke, it will require expertise and hard work to convince the IRS that an Offer in Compromise is the appropriate tax settlement solution.

The amount of the Offer in Compromise will vary depending upon your income, assets, liabilities, and future income prospects. Current IRS guidelines allow for the tax settlement to be paid in several installments over a period as long as two years, however, the total payments are higher for a lump sum Offer in Compromise. Many Flat Fee Tax Service clients have paid $100 to $500 to settle with the IRS.

A TAXPAYER DOES NOT NEED TO BE “DESTITUTE” TO QUALIFY TO ACHIEVE A SUCCESSFUL OFFER IN COMPROMISE.

One fact which some tax resolution companies fail to properly explain to new clients it that if the entire amount of the tax, plus accrued interest and penalties can be paid over the remaining life of the collection statute of limitations, the IRS will not consider accepting the Offer in Compromise. This results in a very strange phenomenon. In some situations, the more you owe, the more likely it is that the IRS will accept an Offer in Compromise.

CURRENTLY THE IRS HAS BEEN APPROVING APPROXIMATELY 42% OF THE

OFFER IN COMPROMISE SUBMISSIONS.

FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE CLIENTS HAVE A

96% TAX SETTLEMENT SUCCESS RATE

Our tax lawyers have found that the negotiation of an Offer in Compromise (OIC) is a lengthy process usually takes 10 to 12 month to complete. While the IRS is processing the Offer in Compromise submission, the IRS must leave you alone. If the IRS fails to reject or accept the Offer in Compromise during a two-year period, the tax settlement will be deemed to be accepted. During the time the OIC is pending, the IRS will not require any payments on old taxes. However, during the time an OIC is pending, you must pay all of your current taxes as they become due, including any quarterly estimated income tax payments and federal payroll tax deposits. If you fail to do so, the IRS will immediately reject your OIC and you will not be entitled to any appeal rights. Furthermore, your deposit, discussed below, will be applied to your taxes and if you wish to make a new Offer in Compromise, you will need to make an additional deposit.

At the time the Offer in Compromise is filed, a deposit must be submitted. The amount of the deposit is 20% of the amount offered for a “lump sum” Offer in Compromise. For a “periodic payment” Offer in Compromise, you must include the first proposed installment with the IRS settlement offer. While a periodic payment OIC is being evaluated by the agency, you must make subsequent proposed installment payments as they become due. If the OIC is rejected, withdrawn, or returned, the IRS keeps any deposits made and applies them to the back taxes you owe. There is also a filing fee for an Offer in Compromise. As of 2016, the filing fee was $186.

If the Offer in Compromise is accepted, you must file and pay all taxes (including any estimated taxes and federal tax deposits) for a period of five years following the acceptance of the OIC. You are going to be required to “be good” for five (5) straight years. If you fail to file your If you breach this or any other term of the OIC, the IRS may immediately proceed against you to collect the entire amount of the original tax liability including interest and penalties, less any payments already received under the terms of the Offer in Compromise, with interest on the unpaid balance accruing from the date of default. An accepted IRS settlement may also be revoked if the IRS determines that there has been a falsification of concealment of assets, or a mutual mistake of a material fact sufficient to cause a contract to be reformed or set aside. In the event your OIC is accepted, a record of the amount of the taxes due and the amount accepted will be available for public inspection for a period of one year at the local IRS office.

The mere act of submitting the Offer in Compromise will extend the time the IRS has to collect the overdue taxes from you for a period of one year, plus the time that the IRS is considering your OIC. This means that if your Offer in Compromise is rejected, the time it took from beginning to to rejection will be added to the Statute of Limitations. Submitting the offer may also delay the earliest time in which you could discharge your taxes bankruptcy. Until the OIC is accepted, interest and penalties continue to accrue on the outstanding balance due. Any refunds owed to you by the Internal Revenue Service for tax years before the end of the calendar year during which the OIC is accepted will be kept by the IRS. Upon acceptance of the OIC, you will give up all rights to dispute the correctness of the tax for any of the years compromised.

THE IRS WANTS TO ACCOMPLISH TWO (2) THINGS: COLLECT MONEY AND CLOSE FILES. AN OFFER IN COMPROMISE ACCOMPLISHES BOTH OF THESE GOALS. THE IRS WILL HAVE COLLECTED “SOMETHING” AND THE FILE IS CLOSED. SO, IF IT CAN BE SHOWN THAT YOU CANNOT PAY YOUR TAX DEBT WITHIN THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS, THE IRS HAS AN INCENTIVE TO APPROVE THE TAX SETTLEMENT.

NOT EVERYONE IS ELIGIBLE. ARE YOU QUALIFIED TO SETTLE WITH THE IRS?

The story for many Americans, who are struggling financially, is a frustrating one. Almost every day we’re hearing that the economy is improving, but individuals and families are still struggling just to make ends meet. As difficult as it may be to pay the rent or mortgage, or put food on the table, you still have a tax debt that needs attention.

So what do you do and where do you turn for help?

You Contact Flat Fee Tax Service

DON’T IGNORE THE IRS. IT WILL COST YOU IF YOU DO.

Financially struggling taxpayers who fall behind in their taxes with the IRS or state entity are putting their bank accounts, paychecks, and financial futures at risk. Failing to act upon an IRS tax collection or enforcement notice all too often leads to any one of several common enforcement actions, including a tax lien, an IRS wage garnishment, a bank levy or seizure of assets.

YOU DO NOT WANT AN IRS LEVY!

These extreme collection enforcement actions can often be avoided. In fact, in many cases, the IRS can be negotiated with and individuals can obtain Offer in Compromise settlements with the IRS where some or most of the back tax obligation can be forgiven by the IRS.

Don’t Make This Mistake.

If you’re like many taxpayers, when you receive an IRS collection notice regarding a possible IRS enforcement action, you may be gripped by fear, afraid to do anything. However, you should ask yourself the following questions:

“What will happen if my salary/paycheck faces an IRS Levy/wage garnishment?”
“What if my personal bank account is frozen and seized?”
“What do I do if I experience a tax lien?”

BE PROACTIVE – DON’T MAKE A MISTAKE AND BE “A POUND FOOLISH.”

Michael and Stacey C. of Arlington, Texas

settled their $137,000 IRS tax debt

for $6,652.

Flat Fee Tax Service is a Better Business Bureau Accredited IRS tax resolution company. We are located in San Diego and our clients are located throughout the United States. In fact, we have clients who are living in other countries and they have problems with the IRS.

Although the IRS has the authority to accept an Offer in Compromise as a full settlement of past tax debts, the great majority of Offer in Compromise settlements (OIC) presented are rejected by IRS Revenue Officers. The reasons why the IRS will accept Offers in Compromise are explained in Policy Statement P-5-100:

“The Service will accept an Offer In Compromise when it is unlikely that the tax liability can be collected in full and the amount offered reasonably reflects collection potential. An Offer in Compromise is a legitimate alternative to declaring a case as currently not collectible or to a protracted installment agreement. The goal is to achieve collection of what is potentially collectible at the earliest possible time and at the least cost to the government.”

PER IRS STATISTICS: THE IRS APPROVED

42% OF ALL

OFFER IN COMPROMISE SETTLEMENTS

Among other policy statements by the IRS regarding an Offer in Compromise (OIC), the Flat Fee Tax Service adheres to the IRS policy when deciding if negotiating an IRS Fresh Start settlement through an Offer in Compromise is a viable tax resolution option for our clients. It is essential that a struggling taxpayer understand that an Offer in Compromise must include all of a taxpayer’s back tax liabilities. For income taxes, any unfiled tax returns must be prepared and filed so that the full liability is known. If there are question marks in a taxpayer’s compliance history, negotiating an Offer in Compromise is most likely the wrong tax resolution strategy to take.

The Internal Revenue Manual does permit the acceptance of an Offer in Compromise with a deferred payment period of up to two years:

“(3) A deferred payment offer is one where any part of the amount offered is to be paid at any date(s) more than 90 days after acceptance of the settlement offer. As a general rule, deferred payment should not be extended beyond two years. . . .
(4) The terms of a deferred payment offer should be precisely stated so there can be no doubt as to the taxpayer’s intent if the offer in compromise is accepted.”

In general, the IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. has learned there is a difference between what is written in the Internal Revenue Manuel and how the IRS Revenue Officers actually conduct delinquent tax debt cases.

Like with any institution, including the IRS, there is a gap between theory and practice. This gap is why you need a tax professional’s guidance when negotiating an Offer in Compromise.

Our experience at Flat Fee Tax Service and our history of successful tax resolution outcomes is why working with our IRS tax relief team makes so much sense. If you want help negotiating an IRS offer in compromise, be sure to contact us at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. for honest, dependable and thorough tax resolution services.
