In days past it was almost impossible to get an offer in compromise through to the IRS. IRS Tax Debt Settlement practice was almost obscure because IRS did not want to work the IRS Settlement Program. Thousands of Offers should have been accepted but due to the stubbornness of the IRS it lost millions of dollars in revenue because it failed to help suffering and struggling taxpayers.

The amount of work that goes into an accepted offer in compromise can be upward to 20 hours. It is far easier for an Agent to reject the offer than go through the task of accepting one. They are reviewed and approved to death.

Most practitioners would not even file Offers or tax settlements.  The ones that did for the most part were preying on taxpayers claiming pennies on a dollar. Not all companies were part of this but it was sickening to see taxpayers paying thousands of dollars when they really never had a chance of getting a tax settlement given the financial facts of their cases.

The IRS would fight you on everything and the extent of the detail they wanted was outrageous.

With the Feds needing money and money in a hurry it finally decided to start settling back tax cases in which it would get instant dollars into the system.

The Commissioner and the powers to be came up with real guidelines that would help these struggling taxpayers final get some badly needed tax relief in the form of  true pennies on a dollars settlement.

There are about 55,000 offers in compromise filed each and every year with about 25% of those offers be accepted. The average settlement on each case is about 14 cents  on a dollar.

 The New IRS Fresh Start Program is allowing taxpayers to settle there tax debt.

The Press Release sent out by the IRS called the Fresh Start Program. See modified version below.

In its latest effort to help struggling taxpayers, the Internal Revenue Service announced a series of new steps to help people get a Fresh Start with their tax liabilities and back tax debts.

The goal  of the IRS is to help individuals and small businesses meet their tax obligations, without adding unnecessary burden to taxpayers.

Understand the process the settlement or offer practice.

While your offer or settlement is being evaluated it is important to know what will, take place:

a. Your non-refundable payments and fees will be applied to the tax liability (you may designate payments to a specific tax year and tax debt);
b. A Notice of Federal Tax Lien may be filed;
c. Other collection activities are suspended;
d. The legal assessment and collection period is extended;
e. Make all required payments associated with your offer;
f. You are not required to make payments on an existing installment agreement; and
g. Your offer is automatically accepted if the IRS does not make a determination within two years of the IRS receipt date.

The New Federal Tax Lien Policy

The IRS is announcing new policies and programs to help taxpayers pay back taxes and avoid the filing of the Federal Tax Liens. this alone is a cause for great joy because the filing of a federal tax lien will crush the credit of a business and or an individual.

The IRS is making fundamental changes to our federal  lien system and other collection tools that will help taxpayers and give them a fresh start, “These steps are good for people facing tough times, and they reflect a responsible approach for the tax system.”

IRS making important changes to its federal tax lien filing practices.

The changes include:

a. Significantly increasing the dollar threshold when liens are generally issued, resulting in fewer tax liens.
b. Making it easier for taxpayers to obtain lien withdrawals after paying a tax bill.
c. Withdrawing liens in most cases where a taxpayer enters into a Direct Debit Installment Agreement.
d. Creating easier access to Installment Agreements for more struggling small businesses.
e. Expanding a streamlined Offer in Compromise program to cover more taxpayers.
