Does IRS Negotiate Tax Settlements? | Flat Fee Tax Service
Updated: Nov 17, 2019
Yes, the IRS negotiates and settles Tax Debt. Every year the IRS will settle, approximately, 42% of the Offer in Compromise submissions.
FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE CLIENTS SAVED, ON AVERAGE, 96% OF THEIR TAX DEBT AND HAD A 95% OFFER IN COMPROMISE SUCCESS RATE.
IT PAYS TO HAVE AN EXPERIENCED TAX PROFESSIONAL HANDLE YOUR OFFER IN COMPROMISE.
This is taken directly from the IRS.gov website:
"An offer in compromise allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe. It may be a legitimate option if you can't pay your full tax liability, or doing so creates a financial hardship. We consider your unique set of facts and circumstances:
a. Ability to pay;
d. and Asset equity.
The IRS) generally approves an Offer in Compromise when the amount offered represents the most we can expect to collect within a reasonable period of time. Explore all other payment options before submitting an offer in compromise (#IRStaxsettlement). The Offer in Compromise program is not for everyone. If you hire a tax professional to help you file an offer, be sure to check his or her qualifications."
THE IRS WANTS TO ACCOMPLISH TWO (2) THINGS:
1. Collect money, even if the tax settlement is $100.00.
2. Close Cases. The IRS wants your case closed.
An Offer in Compromise accomplishes both of these IRS goals.
The IRS will never accept $0.00 (Zero) as a settlement. But, the IRS will accept $100.00. The IRS Tax Attorneys at Flat Fee Tax Service have negotiated many successful Offers in Compromise for $100. Our tax professionals have negotiated many tax settlements for $500. Even $500 settlements can be paid over time. Many of our clients paid $50/mo for 10 months or $100/mo for 5 months to the IRS.

Offer in Compromise Questions We Are Frequently Asked:
1. Do I need to keep paying my Installment Agreement while my Offer in Compromise is being processed?
No. If you have an installment agreement in place, you do not have to make payments while your offer (#taxsettlement) is being processed. If your offer in compromise is not accepted and you have not incurred any additional tax debt, your installment agreement with the IRS will be reinstated with no additional fee.
2. Will a Federal tax lien be filed while my Offer in Compromise is being processed?
During the Offer in Compromise process the IRS may file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien (NFTL). This is a public notice to creditors that you owe a tax debt. However, an NFTL will not normally be filed until a final decision has been made on your offer.
3. Will the Federal tax liens against me be released?
A federal taxlien will be released if your settlement offer is accepted and the agreed tax settlement has been paid in full.
4. Do all of my required tax returns need to be filed before my Offer in Compromise is approved?
Yes. Your Offer in Compromise cannot be considered if all required tax returns have not been filed. You need to file the previous 6 years of tax returns. You must be compliant.
DON'T BE OVERCHARGED FOR AN AN OFFER IN COMPROMISE.
Most tax relief companies, attorneys, CPA's and enrolled agents (EA's) will charge you a minimum of $3,000 and up to approximately $6,500 to do an Offer in Compromise.
Whether you owe $10,000 or $90,000, it will require the same amount of labor hours to get you a successful offer in Compromise. The amount of IRS Forms and required documentation is the same. Why do you want to pay more than you need to? Paying more than you need to for a tax settlement makes no sense to us.
