Do I qualify for an offer in compromise?
Tax debts can spiral out of control to the point where the taxpayer’s ability to pay is rather limited. If the IRS tried to collect 100% of every dollar owed from every delinquent taxpayer, there would be a revolt. If there’s one thing that the IRS is good at, it’s controlling the masses. The Offer in Compromise Program is the IRS’s opportunity to look gracious and kind by giving people a break.
