An IRS tax lawyer helps you to settle a tax liability by facilitating an agreement with the government, and may also get you a waiver on the total outstanding amount. This is usually implemented when the possibility of being able to collect the entire tax liability seems bleak. In such cases, the government tries to extract what is easily collectible, at the earliest possible time and incurring the least costs associated with the recovery process.

Qualification for an Offer in Compromise

Although an IRS lawyer is the best person to tell you whether or not your issue qualifies for an Offer in Compromise, we are going to discuss a list that can help you better understand the criteria to which an offer in compromise may be extended to a taxpayer.

Doubt as to Liability

If a taxpayer disagrees or has doubts about the accuracy of a tax debt, they may may file for an Offer in Compromise. Usually taxpayers file for an Offer in Compromise under this category when they have a valid reason for the reduction or removal of penalties charged by the IRS or believed that the IRS charged them additional interest because of some internal error.

Doubt as to Collectibility

A doubt as to collectibility offer is filed when the taxpayer agrees to owing the taxes but shows an inability to pay the tax debt in full. Under such circumstances, the IRS may considering your request and give you an offer to pay an amount lesser than what you actually owe. In such cases, the government’s objective is to collect an amount that’s reasonable and easily collectible.

Effective Tax Administration

In case the taxpayer is ineligible for an offer in compromise based on Doubt as to Collectibility or Doubt as to Liability,they can still file for an offer in compromise under the Effective Tax Administration head. The IRS may approve the claim if it believes that paying the tax debt may cause the taxpayer economic hardships. In order to avoid this, the IRS may either allow the taxpayer to make partial payment or pay as per a short or long term deferred payment plan.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
