First Step--Make Sure You Qualify for an IRS Settlement!

The IRS approves less than 20% of all Offer In Compromises. The reason for such low success is really two-fold:

1. People are submitting an Offer In Compromise when they do not qualify for a reduction or elimination of their tax debt, which will inevitably result in an automatic rejection.


​2. Taxpayers (and even so-called Tax Professionals that solicit this service) do not understand how to properly compute the financial figures in a manner that will essentially force the Offer Examiner to accept the Offer In Compromise due to a Doubt as to Collectability.

The IRS Offer Examiners will try to find any reason possible to reject an OIC as they do not want to make it easy for taxpayers to walk away from a tax debt.

We are over 95% successful in our negotiations with the IRS due to the fact we do not chase after unattainable outcomes and we always spend the necessary time to confirm someone’s candidacy before anyone gives us a penny to to pursue any kind of settlement or other tax resolution options with the IRS.


We will fully review your case, determine your true level of candidacy, and understand the type of outcome you can expect to receive if everything is handled properly. If it is determined you do not qualify for an Offer In Compromise, we will identify the right strategy in providing you with a desirable outcome.

3 Warnings!

1. This Should Not Be Done Without Help

Completing an Offer in Compromise on your own is a daunting task and the IRS never wants to make it easy to walk away from an unpaid IRS debt. The IRS rejects approximately 80% of all submitted Offer in Compromises and it is important that everything is prepared in a manner that prevents the Offer Examiner from being able to negate or contest what is being proposed.

2. You Only have One Chance

If an Offer is rejected, you cannot resubmit another OIC unless there is a significant change in collectability. Essentially, you only get one shot. It must be done correctly and in a manner that promotes the best possible outcome.

3. Work With Someone Trustworthy

 Beware of companies promising a “pennies on the dollar” settlement. The Offer in Compromise is not for everyone and many requirements must be met before the IRS accepts a tax debt settlement.

What Happens After an OIC is Submitted?

  • The application fees and payments you submitted for your OIC will go towards your outstanding tax debt (you can choose which debts for which tax years)

  • Your collection statute will stop running the moment an OIC is received by the IRS.

  • Your collection statute will be extended in accordance with the amount of time it takes to complete the process. The OIC must be accurately prepared to cut down on the time your statute is paused.

  • If you are in an Installment Agreement, these payments must continue to be made while the OIC is being reviewed. Best to show an inability to continue making monthly payments prior to submitting OIC.
