Offer in Compromise (OIC)
An OIC is an agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS that settles the taxpayer’s tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed. The OIC is a great program for the right candidate. Our experienced staff of tax professionals will gladly discuss all the options you may qualify for. The IRS may consider an OIC based on three grounds:
1. Doubt as to Collectability – Doubt exists that the taxpayer could ever pay the full amount of tax liability.
2. Doubt as to Liability - A legitimate doubt exists that the assessed tax liability is correct.
3. Effective Tax Administration – There is potential for the IRS to collect the full amount. However, an exceptional circumstance exists that would cause the taxpayer to suffer economic hardship or be unfair and inequitable.
There are a variety of installment agreements available that when properly implemented will allow you to repay your tax liability in a comfortable and manageable way. When it comes to installment agreements, having an attorney on your side that knows your rights will ensure you receive the best possible terms from the IRS or State Tax Agencies.

Penalties can increase your tax liability by thousands of dollars. Many taxpayers may qualify for penalty relief. This service requires an understanding of what the IRS will accept as a reasonable cause for the failure to file or pay. If you have reasonable cause it must then be presented in a well documented format to the IRS for consideration. As experts we will evaluate, prepare and submit all the required information to ensure the largest possible reduction in accrued penalties.
