IRS Tax Forgiveness Program IRS TAX DEBT RELIEF
Even the IRS understands life and "stuff happens". That’s why the federal government (and some states) offers IRS debt forgiveness when you can’t afford to pay a tax debt that you may have accrued.
Under certain circumstances, taxpayers can have their tax debt dramatically forgiven. When the IRS considers forgiving your tax liability and settling your tax debt, they look at your current financial condition first. This means the IRS can’t collect more than you can reasonably pay. If any collection and enforcement action would force you into a financial crisis, the IRS can’t collect the back taxes. How to Pay Less Than You Owe the IRS with an
Offer in Compromise.
If you only have the resources to pay a partial amount of your tax debt, you probably qualify for the ultimate and optimum tax debt relief program. You can apply for the IRS government payment plan called an Offer in Compromise (#IRSsettlementagreement) to resolve the remaining amount. Depending on your financial capacity and upon acceptance, the IRS significantly reduces the total debt that you can pay. This reduced amount can be paid in a lump sum or in fixed monthly installments. MANY OF OUR CLIENTS, AT FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC. HAVE PAID BETWEEN $100 AND $500 AS THE TOTAL SETTLEMENT OF THEIR IRS TAX DEBT. Q: What is an Offer in Compromise?

Should your tax settlement agreement be approved, you will be expected to pay a reduced amount within a certain time frame, and failure to do so can result in termination of your agreement.

Well, the first part of the tax settlement process has your Offer in Compromise being sent to the IRS in Tennessee or New York. The job of the IRS agents at those two facilities is to see if your Offer and Compromise paperwork is done correctly. Miss a box to be filed in. It gets rejected. Miss sending some documents? Yep, it gets rejected. Don't sign everywhere that you need to? You guessed it. Your tax settlement will be sent back to you and it is labeled "unprocessible". The IRS will reinstate your tax debt and you have to start all over again. Meanwhile the IRS can start enforcement procedures again. The IRS has two years to review your situation to be sure that they have thoroughly researched your unique situation. If the IRS fails to complete the tax settlement in that time, your Offer in Compromise is automatically approved. During the OIC process, the IRS stops enforcement actions against you. Since the expiration date for your back taxes owed is 10 years from the date of assessment, the clock is paused for however long it takes for your request to be evaluated and a decision made.
