What Is An Offer in Compromise?

An offer in compromise is a type of tax relief that a taxpayer with an unsatisfied tax debt can apply to receive. If the relief is granted, the taxpayer will be permitted by the IRS to settle his or her tax debt for less than the full amount due. For taxpayers who may be facing a particular hardship or other circumstances where t is impossible to satisfy the tax debt may benefit from this type of relief. While this type of relief is appealing to a person with a large debt, approval is difficult to secure. In fact, only about one in every five applicants for the program will be approved. Therefore it is essential for taxpayers to work with an experienced tax professional who understands the program requirements and the types of evidence that must be present to the IRS.
Whether your offer in compromise is accepted or rejected is based on:

  • Ability to pay & Doubt as to collectability - The taxpayer's ability to pay the tax debt is computed on the basis of the reasonable collection potential (RCP) for the matter. In most cases the IRS will not accept an offer in compromise if it is less than the taxpayer's RCP.
  • Certainty regarding the liability - If it is clear that there is a tax liability due and owning, the IRS is less likely to grant a compromise request. A compromise can satisfy this potential grounds only when there is a real dispute about the existence of a tax debt or the amount under the applicable tax code provision.
  • Hardship, equity, or exceptional circumstances - If principles of the effective administration of the tax code exist such that requiring payment would result in hardship or other inequity, the offer in compromise may be accepted. However, the bar to meet this standard is significant.
