Why would the IRS and certain States allow Offer in Compromise in settling tax debts?
An offer in compromise allows people to settle their tax debts for less than the full amount owed. It is a legitimate option offered by IRS and certain states due to current compliance being more important than past non-compliance. It is a win-win situation since the government can get even a part of the debt back, instead of allowing people to destroy their finances and not get anything back at all while people have a new chance for a good tax record.
- How much can one settle for to get an offer in compromise?
The IRS generally approves an offer in compromise when the payment offered represents the most they can collect within a reasonable period of time. To be able to get an offer in compromise, one must convince the IRS that the payment being offered is the most that they can get for settling their tax debt. Not just any random number, the IRS will only accept an offer in compromise that is obtained from a calculation of future income and assets. This is the main reason why even the IRS suggests people to seek tax professionals such as the Platinum Tax Defenders.
