Setting Up An Offer In Compromise

admin Taxes

An offer in compromise (OIC) provides for settling an IRS debt for less than what is owed. For the most part, the agency will allow for this when the taxpayer has a financial hardship. However, before making an application, you must be current with all tax filings and payments.

Next, you should check out Form 656-B. With it, you will have instructions on how to fill out Form 433-A (OIC) (individuals) or 433-B (OIC) (businesses). Basically, the IRS requires that you provide extensive disclosures of your financials.

Keep in mind that the process can be complicated. And yes, the IRS has a high rate of rejecting OIC’s.

So at Pathway Tax, we can certainly help out. In fact, we provide a free initial consultation.
