“We reviewed a lot of other companies out there and Tax Defense Network seemed to have the best reputation and feedback from their clients, so we just took the chance. It was a good choice. They got feedback to me very quickly and answered all my questions. They were very accommodating and understanding.

If I had tried to do it alone, I would never have been able to negotiate with the IRS. It's certainly better than hiding in the shadows because I'm afraid of something happening. They cleared the way for me to plan better and pay my taxes.”

Common Questions About Offer in Compromise

Q: What is an Offer in Compromise?

An Offer in Compromise (OIC) is a settlement agreement between you and the IRS that allows you to settle your debt for far less than you owe. It may sound too good to be true, and for some taxpayers, it is. But if you qualify, an IRS OIC can be the fresh start that you have been waiting for.

You’ll be expected to pay a reduced amount within a limited timeframe, and failure to do so can result in termination of your agreement, forcing you to start over. But you may have options – the IRS allows separate payment terms to meet your specific circumstances.

Q: How do I get an Offer in Compromise?
The IRS doesn’t hand out OICs to just anyone seeking tax relief – you’ll be required to submit a detailed financial report that itemizes your revenue streams, monthly expenses, and more to prove you are unable to afford the full debt. If approved by the IRS, OIC conditions must be kept on your part or your settlement will be invalidated, and all remaining liability will go back on your account.
Q: Where can I find the IRS OIC form?
You’ll want to fill out Form 656 here when applying for an OIC, which includes instructions, Form 656, Form 433-A (OIC), and Form 433-B (OIC).
Q: How long does Offer in Compromise take?
Submitting for an OIC isn’t your typical negotiation situation – you can’t barter for a lower total, but the IRS will take up to two years to review your situation to be sure that they have thoroughly researched your unique situation. Since the expiration date for your back taxes owed is 10 years from the date of assessment, the clock is paused for however long it takes for your request to be evaluated and a decision made.
Q: Is there an IRS Offer in Compromise calculator or IRS Offer in Compromise formula I can use to see if I’m qualified?
There is an IRS Offer in Compromise tool here. This Offer in Compromise Pre-Qualifier Tool can help you see if you may be eligible for an Offer in Compromise.
Q: Is Offer and Compromise different from Offer in Compromise?
No. “IRS Offer and Compromise” is a misnomer for IRS Offer in Compromise. So, if someone mentions an “Offer and Compromise form,” they’re referring to an IRS Offer in Compromise form.
Q: Why should I turn to a tax debt resolution company to seek IRS tax debt forgiveness like an IRS OIC?
Working with tax debt resolution professionals will help weigh your options with the IRS and potentially help you join the ranks of those with offer in compromise success stories. The Tax Defense Network team will be able to do more than just offer you IRS Offer in Compromise tips; we’ll be able to fully review your situation and see if an OIC is a good choice for you. Even if your tax professional concludes that you aren’t a viable candidate for an OIC, there are plenty of other IRS resolution options that may be more suitable to your situation. Many people believe an OIC to be a quick fix to their liability; however, sometimes it can turn out to be far less advantageous than other options that are available.
