Offers in Compromise

An Agreement between the IRS and the taxpayer that settles a tax debt for less than the full amount owed.


The IRS is not an store that you owe money to, that could accepts $.10 on the dollar to settle your  debt. The IRS has ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD, and if it accepts an offer from you to pay much less than the amount owed, is because you have proven to them that you in fact cannot pay it.

The ultimate goal is a compromise which is the best interest of the taxpayer and the IRS

  • We will calculate the amount of the offer.
  • We will file the offer for you, and continue with the process of negotiations until it is accepted, adjusted, or rejected.
