Do You Qualify for an Offer in Compromise?

Doubt as to Liability

To qualify for this condition a taxpayer needs to provide evidence that the assessed tax liability is incorrect and therefore they should not be required to pay the full amount.

Doubt as to Ability to Pay

You’ll qualify for this option if you can provide evidence that you don’t have the ability to pay the tax debt and can show the IRS that it’s likely they will never be able to collect the full amount. The IRS uses a series of guidelines to establish what expenses can and cannot be considered in calculating how much the taxpayer is reasonably able to pay.

Effective Tax Administration

This is a relatively new provision that allows taxpayers to claim that special circumstances would make paying the debt a financial hardship. This option is usually applied to people who are in very poor health or elderly and are not able to work to pay off their tax debt.
