IRS Tax Debt FAQs
What is an Offer in Compromise?
It is a tax relief is a program wherein the IRS will settle a tax debt, whether personal or business for less than the amount owed if a Taxpayer qualifies.
Why would the IRS want to settle a tax debt?
The IRS understands there are situations in which they will not be able to collect the entire amount of tax a citizen owes no matter what they do or how hard they try. By agreeing to settle a tax debt, the IRS brings the Taxpayer back into the system. The Taxpayer is required to stay in compliance and pay their taxes on time after tax relief is granted. It’s a win-win situation for the Taxpayer and the IRS.
