FAQ

Is the Offer in Compromise process to negotiate a settlement for back taxes with the IRS simple enough to be handled by the average person without an attorney?
Yes, but the process can be intimidating. You need to realize that, basically, the IRS will want more than you can pay. This means that if you can pay your IRS debt in the 10-year statute, then you do not qualify for an OIC. Also, if you have adequate assets and/or income, you may not qualify. The OIC is intended for those who cannot pay in full.Start by looking at the OIC booklet 656. Here is a link: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/...Fill out the financial information in Form 433(OIC) which is about pages 7 through 16. Section 8 of this form is the offer amount computation. You must offer more than this. Also, your living expenses cannot exceed the national standards. They can be found here: Collection Financial StandardsOnce you decide on an offer amount, then fill out Form 656 Offer in Compromise. It is in the booklet at about page 23. There is an application fee of $186.00 to apply plus you have to pay 20% of the offer amount upfront. These can be waived if you qualify for low income consideration (see the form and booklet). If you don’t want to do a cash offer but want you installments, that complicates things in that the computation of the minimal acceptable offer may increase.You must (can’t be stressed enough) be current in paying current taxes. Current taxes must be covered by adequate withholding and/or current year estimates.There is a checklist if items to include. You must include all applicable items or explain why they are not in the application.The filing of an offer extends the collection statute so you should be aware of this as well.Edit #1: I was properly reminded that you should consider hiring an Enrolled Agent, CPA or tax attorney if you feel the need. They have expertise in this subject and may be well worth their fee.
How do you settle back taxes with the IRS?
In general the procedure goes something like this:File all those past year returns you’ve ‘forgotten• to file. Nothing can be done for you until you have filed all your current and overdue returns.Contact the IRS and try to set up an installment payment agreement. If you owe less than $50,000 this usually works. Note that if you are late in paying even one payment then the IRS will usually cancel the agreement and go after you for the full balance.Make an Offer in Compromise. Note that there isn’t a lot of ‘dickering• between you and the IRS in the case of an OIC. On a bumper sticker, you file a a form 433, which is an extensive personal financial statement. The IRS looks at the form and decides if an OIC is acceptable or not, based on their rules.The IRS may accept an OIC based on one of the following reasons:First, the IRS can accept a compromise if there is doubt as to liability. A compromise meets this criteria only when there's a genuine dispute as to the existence or amount of the correct tax debt under the law.Second, the IRS can accept a compromise if there is doubt that the amount owed is fully collectible. Doubt as to collectibility exists in any case where the taxpayer's assets and income are less than the full amount of the tax liability.Third, the IRS can accept a compromise based on effective tax administration. An offer may be accepted based on effective tax administration when there is no doubt that the tax is legally owed and that the full amount owed can be collected, but requiring payment in full would either create an economic hardship or would be unfair and inequitable because of exceptional circumstances.OICs are fairly rare, most are disapproved. Like the payment plan, any deviation from the terms of an accepted OIC can and usually does cause the IRS to invalidate the OIC and demand full settlement.If the taxpayer is just flat unable to pay because there really isn’t any blood in the turnip, then the IRS may be convinced that the debt is noncollectable, and place the taxpayer into ‘Currently not collectable• status.There are lots of rules and caveats regarding ‘CNC• status, it is not a ‘get out of tax jail free• card. But it is appropriate in many cases. For example, and older person confined to a nursing home for a disease or disability may have little likelihood of earning much money ever again even if they were once a strong earner.A taxpayer can do every one of these steps on their own, I strongly recommend getting professional help.If you are low income taxpayer then VITA may be able help you with filing and tax issues for free.Otherwise I recommend consulting an Enrolled Agent or Certified Public Accountant who is a tax specialist for advice and assistant with income tax problems or questions.To the average taxpayer, dealing with the IRS is often a frustrating nightmare. To an EA or tax experienced CPA the typical taxpayer problem is ‘Tuesday’.Note that in my opinion going straight to a tax lawyer is unnecessary for most taxpayers. There is a little a lawyer can do for you that an EA or CPA can’t, short of going to tax court. In fact many tax lawyers hire EA’s or CPA’s do to almost all of the actual tax work anyway.If, on the other hand, your tax professional or you yourself suspect you have committed an actual crime then you do need to engage an attorney as soon as possible! Attorneys have much stronger client privilege than other tax professionals. You don’t want to wind up sharing a cell with Al Capone!In closing, I can’t emphasis enough that ‘forgetting• to file your annual tax returns is the very worst thing you can do to protect yourself financially!You don’t want to to wind up paying hundreds or thousands of dollars to a tax professional to save your house from an IRS lien, only to be saddled with a huge debt to the IRS from your OIC or payment plan.That’s what will happen if you don’t file your annual tax return.
If a fixed income senior who has large phantom income due to ISO, is unable to pay the taxes, using 433A might the IRS accept offer as in the details?
The purpose of Form 433-A is to provide the IRS with the taxpayer’s detailed financial information, usually in the context of an Offer in Compromise (OIC) or an installment payment plan.If the IRS believes that it can collect the entire debt owed with minimal effort on its part, it will not accept an OIC, regardless of taxpayer claims of economic hardship. I can't imagine a circumstance where the IRS will accept a barter arrangement with a taxpayer, especially when the taxpayer appears to have sufficient assets otherwise to cover the debt but doesn't want to give them up for that purpose. Most taxpayers in a situation like this are going to try to come up with imaginative ways to avoid paying a debt, and the IRS is decidedly unsympathetic to such approaches.The IRS’s job is to collect taxes that are due the government under existing tax law. Deferred payment arrangements are used as a legal tax avoidance strategy, but as part of the price for allowing them to be used that way, Congress wrote in provisions that restrict the ability of employers and employees to use them to shelter large amounts of income that would otherwise be taxed, and the tax bite you get on ISOs is one of those provisions. The IRS is going to enforce those provisions. Realize that what you are being taxed on isn't “phantom” income, but income that you would have been taxed on had you chosen a different compensation arrangement, and on which you chose to defer the bite.
