OFFER IN COMPROMISE

An IRS Offer in Compromise (OIC) is truly amazing! A qualified taxpayer offers the IRS a substantially lesser amount of money as full satisfaction of their outstanding tax liability.

NEW: On May 21, 2012 the IRS Announced SWEEPING new changes to their OIC program. These new changes will now allow more taxpayers to qualify for an offer in compromise settlement.

Determining if you may qualify for a California offer in compromise, determining the lowest possible amount to offer the IRS that they are likely to accept, are just two of the many CRITICAL decisions that you will need to make.

WARNING: Don't be fooled by some of those misleading "tax resolution" companies who advertise on the TV, radio and internet... where they "promise" you a reduced IRS compromise settlement with the IRS for "pennies on the dollar."   In fact, 29% of all OICs submitted are immediately returned back to the taxpayer by the IRS because they were incorrectly filled out or had no chance of acceptance.

If you have an IRS tax liability of $30,000 or more, please contact me, San Diego tax attorney Richard Carpenter for assistance. I can help you with a California offer in compromise regardless of where you live. 

 I only accept IRS Offer in Compromise cases with a tax debt of over $30,000.  Also, your balance due amount owed to the IRS must be significantly more than the current value of your assets and it must also exceed your ability to pay the IRS for you to possibly qualify for an offer in compromise settlement.

DID YOU KNOW THAT ...

  • Past due payroll taxes can also be included in an IRS OIC.
  • A taxpayer submitting a "cash" IRS Offer In Compromise generally must pay the IRS in five or fewer months.
  • A taxpayer submitting a "periodic payment" offer will need to pay a higher amount to the IRS than a "cash" offer.
  • There is a 5 year "stay current" rule which applies to an IRS Offer in Compromise.
  • Before you can become eligible for an Offer in Compromise, you must first file all delinquent tax returns and also make all required estimated tax payments for the current tax year.
  • The careful completion of the "Collection Information Statement" form is critical to getting a favorable Offer in Compromise accepted.
  • Negotiation skills also play an important part in getting the lowest possible offer amount accepted.
  • A 20% non-refundable deposit to the IRS must be submitted with an Offer in Compromise

SAN DIEGO TAX ATTORNEY RICHARD CARPENTER CAN HELP YOU REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU LIVE ...

  • Determining whether you may qualify for a reduced Offer In Compromise settlement.
  • Determining whether an Offer In Compromise is your best option.
  • Calculating the lowest amount for you to offer the IRS that they will likely accept.

RICHARD CARPENTER's EXPERIENCE ...

   I am one of the leading San Diego tax audit defense attorney's in the United States. For the past 30 years, I have successfully resolved thousands of client IRS tax disputes through tax representation. I have the knowledge and 30 years of experience needed to get qualified taxpayers a reduced offer-in-compromise settlement with the IRS.

     I am a part-time tax law professor at the University of San Diego School of Law, a Certified Tax Law Specialist by the State Bar of California, and the author of 14 published articles, one of which is a leading article concerning IRS Offer In Compromise ("GET THE BEST DEAL FOR CLIENTS FROM THE IRS COLLECTION DIVISION", published in Taxation For Accountants, August 1998 issue, and republished in Taxation For Lawyers, September/October 1998 issue).

I have been recognized as one of the Top San Diego County Attorneys in 2007, 2009 and 2010 by the San Diego Daily Transcript legal newspaper and was also named a "Super Lawyer" in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

WARNING ABOUT "TAX RESOLUTION" COMPANIES

Don't be fooled by some of those "tax resolution" companies who advertise on the TV, radio and internet. Many of these companies have lots of consumer complaints. Here are three examples:

1) On August 23, 2010, the California Attorney General filed a $34 million dollar lawsuit against the Sacramento based tax resolution company Roni Deutch, the Tax Lady. The Attorney General alleged that Tax Lady Roni Deutch "engaged" in a heartless scheme that swindled people with tax problems... she promises to signigicantly reduce their IRS tax debts... but providing little or no help."Roni Deutch has now closed and left its clients stranded.

2) On May 13, 2010, the Attorney General of Texas charged Tax Masters with multiple violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. According to their Attorney General, "a state investigation and nearly 1,000 customer complaints indicate that the defendants (Tax Masters) routinely misled customers about the nature of their tax resolution service agreements." Tax Masters has recently filed for Bankrupcy and left its clients stranded.

3) As reported by the Wall Street Journal, J.K. Harris, a South Carolina based tax help company - was sued by the Attorney General from 18 different states after it was found that this company didn't get consumers the tax relief it promised. According to the North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper, "many consumers paid J.K. Harris for tax help and got nothing but headaches in return." The Massachussetts Attorney General Martha Coakley also stated that J.K. Harris "took advantage of people who paid for tax assistance and, in some instances, profited by taking their money and not giving them any help at all. J.K. Harris has recently closed and left its clients stranded.
