Offers-In-Compromise: Navigating the Process

While Congress has given the IRS the authority to compromise tax liabilities for less than the full amount due, the law never compels the IRS to accept an offer-in-compromise. Thus the key to representing taxpayers in offer-in-compromise situations is to be fully aware of the internal procedures and ground rules that the IRS has established for itself. By reviewing these procedures and showing you how to intelligently utilize the IRS rules for the benefit of your clients, this course will equip you to successfully navigate the sometimes treacherous waters of the offer-in-compromise. The objectives of this course include familiarizing you with the basics of doubt as to liability and effective tax administration offers, while providing you will specific tools and references for handling doubt as to collectability cases.
