IRS Debt Help | IRS Debt Forgiveness | Flat Fee Tax Relief

What Is the IRS Debt Forgiveness Program? IRS Debt Help?

Even the IRS understands “stuff happens” happens. That’s why the agency offers IRS debt forgiveness (IRS debt help) when you can’t afford to pay your tax debt.

Remember this, the IRS has 2 goals: collect money and close cases. Under certain circumstances, taxpayers can have their tax debt dramatically or partially forgiven. When the IRS considers forgiving your tax liability, they look at your present financial condition first. This means the IRS can’t collect more than you can reasonably pay. If any collection action would force you into a financial crisis where you lose all sense of financial security, the IRS can’t collect your tax debt.

IRS Tax Debt
IRS Tax Forgiveness

Know What You Owe – Know What You Qualify For

Before applying for IRS programs, find out how much in taxes you owe to the IRS. Knowing what IRS forgiveness programs you qualify for and how much you currently owe is vital when it comes to asking for IRS forgiveness.

There are many different ways to find out how much you owe, including checking online through the IRS’s new portal, calling the IRS, mailing the IRS a form, or having a tax professional do the research for you. The advantage to having an tax professional look into your IRS problem is this: the IRS won’t be asking you questions which you would be obligated to answer. No matter how you figure out how much you owe in back taxes, you’ll need to know before seeking forgiveness. 

The IRS has many many rules. How much you owe is among the different rules that they have. It is important to know how much the tax debt is in order to to attack the IRS problem.

Be on the Lookout for IRS Collection Actions

If you can’t pay but you haven’t reached out to the IRS for forgiveness or assistance, you should still expect them to begin taking collection actions against you. These actions can range from seemingly benign, like loads of notices in the mail, to very aggressive, like private debt collection agencies getting involved and tracking you down.  You could also find that your passport is at risk due to tax debt.

Some of the IRS’s often-used collection actions include:

 Tax Lien – Federal Tax Lien – A tax lien is an IRS claim against your property, which will secure their interest in your assets if you fail to pay your tax debt. It’s kind of like “an insurance policy.” It is what we call a “passive collection.” Unlike a tax levy, a lien doesn’t mean your property will be taken immediately. However, you’ll still need to address the tax lien. Not only can a tax lien keep you from selling your property, but it can also snowball into a more aggressive action in the future. Once again, depending on how much the tax debt is, tax liens are regulated by the tax debt owed.

Tax Levy – IRS Garnishment – Bank Levy – Wage Garnishment

tax levy is the agency authority to legally seizure of your property to satisfy your outstanding unpaid tax debt. You should have been sent a notice of levy from the IRS, which will let you know that they are planning to pursue levying actions against you. 

A tax levy can be placed on personal property like your home, car, or boat. They can also be placed on your assets, like your bank funds, tax refunds, and wages. 

A Wage garnishment is a type of tax levy in which the IRS will take part of your income in order to settle your existing tax debt. The IRS will order your employer and will continue garnishing your wages until your tax debt is paid or other arrangements are made to pay your tax debt.

Pay Less Than You Owe with Offer in Compromise

After paying your “allowable expenses” (everyday expenses), if it can be shown that you cannot pay the entire tax debt, you should apply for the IRS government payment plan called an Offer in Compromise (OIC) to settle your tax debt. Depending on your financial capacity and upon acceptance, the IRS significantly reduces the total debt that you can pay. This reduced amount can be paid in a lump sum or in fixed monthly payments.

The tax professionals at Flat fee Tax Relief, have a 96% Offer in Compromise approval rate. Our team members know how to shepherd a successful Offer in Compromise submission. The IRS considers your ability to pay, income, expenses, and asset equity when determining your eligibility for an OIC. While it can be a life-changing tax resolution for many people, the IRS doesn’t give an Offer in Compromise easily.

Offer in Compromise – Tax Settlement

See If You Qualify for the IRS Fresh Start Initiative

To make it easier for taxpayers to qualify for an OIC, the IRS has expanded their Fresh Start initiative.

These changes to the Fresh Start initiative make it easier to afford your IRS tax payments. Now, you won’t have to disclose extensive financial details to the IRS to judge your paying ability. 

  • Instead of looking at five years of future income to determine reasonable collection potential, the IRS now looks at only one to two year of future income for offers, depending on the payment period. 
  • Taxpayers are now allowed to make their student loan minimum payment for post-high school education loans guaranteed by the federal government.
  • Taxpayers may, under certain conditions including financial hardship, pay delinquent federal and state or local taxes in monthly installments if they cannot pay it in full.
  • The IRS has expanded the Allowable Living Expense standards. This allowance now includes credit card payments, bank fees and charges, and other various allowances.
  • The IRS has doubled the dollar threshold for taxpayers eligible for Installment Agreements, which will help more people qualify.

I am Dave Rosa. It is my duty and pleasure to provide you with a comprehensive consultation. Not to “toot my own horn” but I have been doing this for a very long time. After 20 to 30 minutes on the phone, we will know if an Offer in Compromise is the right thing to do for you. If it is great, if it isn’t we will look for another way to provide you with IRS tax debt help and reduce your tax debt.

NOW IT’S ALL UP TO YOU.

Will an Offer in Compromise Stop a Levy | Flat Fee Tax Relief

HOW TO STOP AN IRS LEVY WITH AN

OFFER IN COMPROMISE

At least once a week someone will call our tax professionals and ask us how to avoid or stop or prevent an IRS levy. There are different ways to stop a tax levy, but one very effective way is to file an Offer in Compromise (tax settlement), and I’m going to discuss that.

Remember, an IRS levy is different than a tax lien. An IRS levy is when the IRS actually takes action against you to take your money. Yes, the IRS will seize your wages, your paycheck and/or bank account(s). A tax levy is usually a wage garnishment or a bank levy. The key difference between an IRS garnishment that seizes your wages and a bank levy is that the wage garnishment is continuous, and by that we mean that the IRS files the paperwork one time, sends it to your employer, and then they get a piece of your paycheck every time you get paid until they are paid in full.

A bank levy is just what you would expect; they take the money out of your bank account. This is often referred to as a one-time levy, which is a little misleading because they can file the paperwork over and over, but the fact is that it is not continuous meaning that when the levy hits your bank account, the IRS will seize the money in the bank account on the day the levy hits. It is not continuous, meaning if you put more money in there after the levy hits they do not get that money. You have 21 days from the dat the IRS levy hits your bank to get the money released back to you. Needless to say, you have “zero” time to lose.

THE TAX PROFESSIONALS AT FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE ROUTINELY HAVE AN IRS GARNISHMENT STOPPED AND RELEASED IN ONE DAY.

The best way to avoid an IRS levy is to get compliant and come up with a plan to solve your tax problem once and for all. However, in the real world, of course, a tax levy happens all the time and people come call our tax professionals when they are missing their paycheck.

One way to stop an IRS levy is to submit an Offer in Compromise. An Offer in Compromise is a legitimate offer to settle with the IRS. Conceptually, the idea of an Offer in Compromise is very simple, but in reality, folks need help doing it because there is an awful lot of detail involved and if you don’t do it just right, the Internal Revenue Service will reject or return the Offer in Compromise submission and you will need to re-do it or give up. The IRS hopes that you get discouraged and give up.

Here’s what the IRS Code says:

Suspension of the Tax Levy While the Offer in Compromise is Pending

1. IRC 6331(k) provides that no tax levy may be made:

• During the period that the settlement offer is pending
• For an additional 30 days after the offered settlement is rejected, and
• During the time any appeal of the rejection is pending.

2. Treasury Regulation 301.7122-1(d)(2) states that an Offer in Compromise becomes pending once it is accepted for processing. This is the date the IRS official signs the Form 656.

Offer in Compromise – IRS Settlement

A couple of items to sick in your bonnet: Using an Offer in Compromise to stop a tax levy has the potential to be a real home run for you. In the short term, it can and will stop the IRS levy. And in the long term, it can actually settle your entire tax debt for less than what you owe. In other words, it can solve the bigger problem, your unpaid tax bill.

Keep in mind that it does take time to put together an Offer in Compromise. On average, it will take 10 to 12 months to complete. Some folks are impatient but “it is what it is.” When our tax professionals receive a call because of an IRS levy, it’s often an emergency-type situation. People need the tax levy lifted (stopped and released) quickly because they cannot pay their bills without their paycheck.

OUR TAX PROFESSIONALS HAVE SOME “TRICKS UP OUR SLEEVE” THAT WILL STOP THE IRS LEVY PRIOR TO THE OFFER IN COMPROMISE SUBMISSION. THIS WILL PROVIDE THE NECESSARY “STRESS FREE” TIME TO PUT TOGETHER YOUR OFFER IN COMPROMISE.

Our team doesn’t rely on on the Offer in Compromise to stop the tax levy. We have other procedures to accomplish that. Once the Offer in Compromise is submitted, the levy release will stay in place. The tax levy is stopped once the settlement offer is “accepted for processing.” Technically, the settlement offer is “accepted for processing” when the proper IRS official signs Form 656 (the Offer in Compromise form). In our experience, offers are usually processed in about two weeks after they are filed.

IRS Installment Agreement | Flat Fee Tax Relief

What is Installment Agreement
(Payment Plan)?

An installment agreement is one way of paying the taxes that you owe. An IRS Installment agreement can be available to individuals and businesses. Installment agreements are based on financial information that is provided to the IRS. There are several different kinds of installment agreements available to taxpayers. An Installment Agreement may be based on the amount of taxes owed ($50,000 or less) or your current financial condition. The IRS uses forms 433-A, 433-F and 433-B to determine your financial condition and set the amount of your monthly payment. What information is provided and how your financial information is provided to the IRS is critical. Remember, the IRS agent’s job is to collect as much money from you in the shortest amount of time possible. Your lack of knowledge WILL be used against you.

IRS Tax Debt Help

Far too many taxpayers are placed into installment agreements that they simply cannot afford to pay. Before you agree to any payment plan with the IRS, a taxpayers with a tax debt should really consult with an experienced tax professional. Instead of making payments that may be impossible to keep, you may be eligible for Currently not Collectible status.

Before you agree to an IRS Installment Agreement, you may find out that you are eligible and qualified to settle with the IRS through an Offer in Compromise submission. You owe to yourself to find out what is available to you.

Currently not Collectible | Flat Fee Tax Debt Help

What is Non-Collectible Status? Currently not Collectible Status

Having a taxpayer declared to be Currently not Collectible can have many positive outcomes. Being placed into Currently not Collectible status is a situation where the taxpayer can demonstrate that paying the IRS constitutes an “economic hardship.” To be placed in non-collectible status the monthly “IRS allowable expenses” must exceed monthly income on Form 433-A or 433-F.

It is important to understand and know what the IRS allows as an expense and how much the IRS allows for each expense. It is also important to understand that this is usually just a temporary solution. By “temporary” we mean that usually Currently not Collectible status runs for 18 to 24 months. The IRS can reassess the individual’s ability to pay at that time.

While in Currently not Collectible status, the time that the IRS has to collect continues to run. What does that mean? As an example, if someone owes a $60,000 tax debt and the IRS has 5 years left to collect the tax debt and furthermore you have been in Currently not Collectible status for 24 months, then only 36 months remains to collect. So, it is possible to run out the clock (Statute of Limitations) on the tax debt. This strategy can be very tricky to maneuver and it would be best to have an experienced tax professional handle this. Be aware, the IRS can take away Currently not Collectible status whenever they wish.

If the IRS has declared a taxpayer to be Currently not Collectible and you owe $10,000 or more, your best bet may be to submit a tax settlement. An Offer in Compromise (also referred to as the ‘Fresh Start Program) are the most advertised and least accepted IRS solution.

It is possible that our tax professionals have you placed into Currently not Collectible status while we put together your Offer in Compromise submission.

Think about it. The IRS has declared that you cannot pay your tax debt. By being Currently not Collectible, the IRS keeps your tax debt alive. An Offer in Compromise settles your tax debt altogether.

If you are struggling to pay your back taxes, you may qualify for an Offer in Compromise. This program may allow you to settle back taxes or IRS liability at a substantial discount on the basis of doubt of liability, collect-ability or effective tax administration.

Nearly all successful tax settlements through an Offer in Compromise are due to the inability of the taxpayer to pay their tax debt after paying their daily allowable expenses.

Established by the Internal Revenue Service, the Offer in Compromise Program is a formal application to the IRS requesting that it accept less than full payment for what you owe in taxes, interest, and penalties. This out of court agreement negotiates your back taxes and places collection efforts on hold and prohibits the IRS from instituting a tax levy of your assets and wages.

Offer in Compromise – Tax Settlement

While it is possible to submit an application yourself, many people complete the forms incorrectly, overstate their assets and income, and offer too much. IRS figures show that 75% of offers are returned immediately due to incorrect forms. Of the 25% that are processed, approximately 50% are rejected. This is why it’s important to work with an experienced tax consultant throughout your Offer in Compromise process.

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.

I am Dave Rosa. It is my duty and pleasure to provide you with a comprehensive and free consultation. my conversation with you will take 20 to 30 minutes. You can be assured that at the end of our conversation, you will know if you should do an Offer in Compromise or not.

We have have been doing successful Offer in Compromise submissions for the past twenty years. Our tax professionals will get you through this settlement process successfully.

IRS Tax Lawyer Secrets | Offer in Compromise | Flat Fee Tax Service

OFFER IN COMPROMISETAX SETTLEMENT

An Offer in Compromise is an option that you have with the IRS to settle your back income taxes. If you owe a substantial amount of money in federal taxes ($10,000 or more), you can submit an IRS settlement agreement through the Offer in Compromise program for less than your total outstanding balance and see if the IRS accepts it. Generally considered the “nuclear option” if you have a tax bill you doubt you’ll ever be able to pay off, filing an offer in compromise is a long and daunting process (an Offered settlement can take 12 months) with many confusing and seemingly contradictory requirements.

Even though the Offer in Compromise program was simplified through the Fresh Start Initiative, gathering all the necessary paperwork for an offer in compromise is incredibly time to consume as is staying on top of communications from the IRS regarding your settlement offer. However, if your income tax debt is significant and/or you are in poor shape financially, it may be worth it to take the time to submit an Offer in Compromise.

Offer in Compromise

Offer in Compromise Types

First, you, the financially struggling taxpayer, need to know what type of offer in compromise you should file. There are two chief types of offers: doubt as to collectibility and doubt as to liability. Doubt of collectibility offers are made if it doesn’t look like the IRS will have any chance of collecting all or most of your outstanding balance right now or in the near future because your assets and income are outweighed by your outstanding balance. If you are filing a doubt as to liability offer in compromise, the premise for settling your back taxes is that there have been tax administration errors, and you don’t actually owe as much as the IRS says you do. Your liability isn’t supposed to exist under the current tax law, or ministerial errors were made.

An Offer in Compromise can also be made in the name of effective tax administration, where you are not arguing that tax law was correctly applied (and your balance is collectible to an extent) but that paying your outstanding taxes would cause a significant financial hardship, and the IRS isn’t going to get any money out of you as a result. For example, the value of your home could determine that your tax liability is collectible but losing your home would result in hardship.

THE ONLY TYPE OF OFFER IN COMPROMISE THAT YOU NEED TO BE CONCERNED WITH IS: DOUBT AS TO COLLECTIBILITY

Fees and Low-Income Certification

Generally, there is a $186 nonrefundable application fee when you apply for an offer in compromise. It is totally separate from any tax payments and doesn’t count toward your outstanding balance. The only exception to this is if you are submitting an offer based on doubt as to liability. The fee is also waived if you qualify for the low-income exception. If your monthly income falls at or below 250% of the poverty guidelines set by the Department of Health and Human Services, you can check off the low-income certification section of the offer in compromise form (Form 656).

Eligibility and Taking Care of Unfiled Tax Returns

The IRS Tax Lawyer at Flat Fee Tax Service who is handling your IRS tax problem, will ensure that you’re eligible for an offer in compromise. If you are in open bankruptcy proceedings, you can’t make an offer.

Flat Fee Tax Service can determine if you are eligible and qualified to settle with the IRS during our initial consultation.

Next, you need to make sure that you’ve filed all outstanding tax returns. The alternative is to wait for the IRS to file substitute returns on your behalf, but this frequently doesn’t have the best outcome. Substitute returns only account for the bare minimum of tax benefits and rely on data already in the system, such as W-2 and 1099’s on file, opposed to what your actual tax situation could look like. Because of this, your total outstanding tax debt could look a lot larger than it really is and make it harder for your offer to be accepted as a result.

Compiling a Personal Financial Statement

You need to prove that your income and assets are insufficient to pay your entire outstanding tax balance. IRS Form 656 has two different financial statement forms, one for individuals and businesses, with an extra section for self-employed taxpayers. This statement is incredibly exhaustive as you must provide information about your and your spouse’s employment, whether your dependents and other people living in your household contribute to the household income, household expenses, vehicles and other assets, and virtually anything else related to your ability to pay down your tax debt. You must include copies of documents such as pay stubs, car notes, student loan payments, and other proof of your expenses, income, assets, and debts to substantiate what you entered on the financial statement. If you are self-employed, you need to provide an extensive breakdown of assets used in your business as well as where your income comes from and the type of expenses you have.

The purpose of collecting so much financial information is so that the IRS can determine if you can pay your balance in a reasonably short time frame and that it doesn’t merit the other resolution options available to you such as going on a payment plan or making your account temporarily uncollectible.

Making the Offer in Compromise and Choosing a Payment Plan

Once you’ve compiled your financial statement, which should support your Offer in Compromise amount and how much you are able to pay, you then make the actual offer. The offer price should be as close to the original tax liability as possible, within reason.

You also will specify if you will make the offer in five payments or less with a lump-sum payment plan or periodic plan (typically monthly). If you are opting for the lump-sum option, your package must include a payment for 20% of the total offer amount. For periodic plans, including the first period’s payment in your package. You then need to stay current on these payment plans while waiting for the IRS to make a decision.

Waiting for the IRS to Respond

Once you submit the settlement offer and your initial payment, you must honor the payment arrangement proposed in your offer even though it will take time for you to get a response. While the IRS is processing your offer, you need to keep making these payments or else your offer will be voided. The only exception to this rule is if you meet the low-income certification guidelines.

Another important factor to consider is that while you wait for the IRS to accept or reject your offer in compromise, penalties and interest will still mount on your outstanding balance. Collection actions will be suspended, but you may still receive a federal tax lien that won’t be released until the terms of the offer have been satisfied. Because of this, if you have any outstanding installment agreements, then you don’t need to make payments on them.

If you received a notice that your offer was accepted, or two years passed from the date that the IRS received your offer, and they still didn’t respond with a decision, then your offer has been deemed acceptable. You still must keep up with the payments that you were making while waiting for a response, except that now your outstanding balance has been reduced to your offer amount. If you have any federal tax refunds for future tax years, they will also be applied to your outstanding balance.

A Returned Offer in Compromise and Rejections

A common mistake people make when submitting an offer in compromise that comes back to them is confusing it for a rejection. The IRS will sometimes send back an offer in compromise package if the information is missing. Other reasons for returning the offer package include failure to enclose the application fee or make the first payment, didn’t file the required tax returns, or didn’t pay current tax liabilities while the offer was being considered. While being in open bankruptcy proceedings generally deems you ineligible, you can still try to submit an offer in compromise, and it will just get returned instead of outright rejected.

This distinction is important because having an offer package returned to you doesn’t give you a right to an appeal. Your submission date completely resets once you’ve gathered all the missing information and/or payments and can resend your offer, starting the entire process all over again. This means that you will need to update your financial statement as well as provide new and current supporting documents.

If your Offer in Compromise is rejected, however, you will receive a formal rejection notice in the mail with detailed instructions on how to elevate your case to the IRS Office of Appeals. Your request for an appeal has to be made within 30 days from the date on this letter, or else you’ll have to start an entirely new offer from scratch. You will usually be given reasons for rejection and have the opportunity to dispute them as well as make a counteroffer for the amount you will pay over time.

Potential Consequences of Submitting an Offer in Compromise

If the IRS accepts your Offer in Compromise, you will never be able to dispute the amount in court or anywhere else. If you wind up having to file for bankruptcy after the offer has been accepted, the amount of federal taxes you owe now can’t be disputed.

If you suspect that you are going to default on a payment plan once they IRS has accepted an offer in compromise, you should contact the IRS immediately so your offer isn’t voided in the event of an emergency such as job loss, domestic violence, or health problems.

How Much Money will the IRS Settle For | Flat Fee Tax Service

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?

These are the facts. In 2014, the IRS received 68,000 offers in compromise from taxpayers. The IRS accepted 27,000 of those settlement offers. The IRS accepted 40% of the settlement offers submitted.

FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE CLIENTS HAVE A 95% SUCCESS RATE 

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.
