Offer in Compromise – The IRS and many states have a settlement program known as an “offer in compromise” that allows us to negotiate a settlement for a fraction of what is owed. This method can be used to eliminate a tax debt and give a taxpayer a fresh start. The basis for the IRS accepting an offer in compromise is that there is a ‘doubt as to collectability”, meaning that the IRS would likely not be able to collect the entire amount owed, or that exceptional circumstances would make paying your full tax bill unfair or inequitable.
