What is an Offer in Compromise?

If you owe the IRS more money than you can afford to pay, attorney Paul S. Ward can prepare an offer in compromise for the IRS to consider. An offer in compromise is a settlement offer based on the understanding that you will never be able to pay off your tax debt in full. If you are able to convince the IRS that you cannot pay in full, they may accept a lesser amount.

Most often, people make one bulk payment to the IRS and then they are free from their previous tax debt. You can also work with the IRS to develop a payment plan. Not every person is a good candidate for an offer in compromise, but Paul S. Ward can help you understand your options.
