If you ask the IRS they’ll tell you that you can file a request for an Offer In Compromise, which is part of the IRS Fresh Start Program, on your own and you don’t need to pay any professional for help. The IRS says this right on its website.
The IRS will also warn you that there are unscrupulous people who will call themselves “tax pros” and they will make unrealistic promises about an Offer In Compromise and The IRS Fresh Start Program just to grab your money.
We’d like to take a few minutes to discuss this.
First of all, our organization has true seasoned tax professionals including attorneys, IRS Enrolled Agents, and accountants and tax resolution specialists who deal with taxpayers and their cases with the IRS as regular, full-time professionals. We are not here to cheat you, and we’re really here to help. We have a solid reputation built up over the years and we’re not going to blow it now.
And you don’t want to blow your chance for an Offer In Compromise, and the IRS Fresh Start Program, so do you really want to deal with the IRS on your own?
Just look at what the IRS says are the three reasons it uses to grant an Offer In Compromise and ask yourself can you prove this information to the IRS without help?
Here are the three reasons that the IRS will grant an Offer In Compromise as stated by the IRS:
- First, the IRS can accept a compromise if there is doubt as to liability. A compromise meets this criterion only when there’s a genuine dispute as to the existence or amount of the correct tax debt under the law.
- Second, the IRS can accept a compromise if there is doubt that the amount owed is fully collectible. Doubt as to collectibility exists in any case where the taxpayer’s assets and income are less than the full amount of the tax liability.
- Third, the IRS can accept a compromise based on effective tax administration. An offer may be accepted based on effective tax administration when there is no doubt that the tax is legally owed and that the full amount owed can be collected, but requiring payment in full would either create an economic hardship or would be unfair and inequitable because of exceptional circumstances.
Now you know what the IRS says. Do you understand it? You might have to read and then read those three conditions again and again before you fully understand them. And if you do fully understand them can you adequately present your case so the IRS will accept your Offer In Compromise request?
Let’s go over the three points again.
Can you argue a doubt of tax liability?
Can you argue a doubt that you can pay?
Can you argue what’s unfair and inequitable?
