Okay Let's Compromise

If you can't pay for tax liability or if paying would cause financial hardship you may be able to come to a compromise with the IRS.

Tell me more--

An "Offer in Compromise" is a mutually beneficial agreement between you and the IRS to settle your tax debt for less than you owe.

To apply for an offer in compromise you must pay a fee of $205 however if you are low income you may qualify to waive the fee.

The IRS will consider your income, expenses and asset equity when reviewing your eligibility for a compromise.
