IRS Offer in Compromise - San Diego Tax Settlement What is an Offer in Compromise (OIC)? An Offer in Compromise is an IRS tax settlement between a taxpayer and the IRS to settle a tax debt for less than what a taxpayer owes. If you cannot pay the full amount owed to the IRS, but are willing and able to pay a fraction of the amount owed in full satisfaction of your tax debt, an offer in compromise is the right tax relief option for you. An Offer in Compromise (#OfferinCompromise) is a very effective and efficient way to get a fresh start and eliminate your tax debt. This solution to your tax debt problem is one that best benefits the taxpayer as well as the IRS.
The most common Offer in Compromise (OIC) is a “Doubt as to Collectability Offer.” This is the IRS tax debt settlement help that will more thn likely be for you. In determining whether to accept this offer in compromise, the IRS will look at your ability to pay, based on your assets, future earning potential, and current income and living expenses.
Another type of Offer in Compromise (OIC) is a “Doubt as to Liability Offer.” Here, the IRS does not consider your current income in deciding whether to accept the offer. Instead, a doubt as to liability offer gives a taxpayer an opportunity to settle tax debt for a fraction of what is owed if the taxpayer has reason to believe he or she does not in fact owe the amount that the IRS claims he owes. Doubt as to liability offers are not available to taxpayers who have already litigated their tax debt in court.
