Chicago IRS Debt Settlement Firm

Negotiate an Offer in Compromise with The Tax Defenders

Many people have heard that there is a way to settle your debt with the IRS for literally pennies on the dollar. This is the Offer in Compromise (OIC) program, and yes, it is possible to settle tax debt for a fraction of the original amount.

What most people do not realize, however, is that the OIC program exists just as much to benefit the IRS as to help the taxpayers. It is very rare and only under special circumstances that the IRS will accept an OIC that is not in the agency’s best interests.

This means getting your settlement accepted requires that you show the IRS that it’s good for them, too. The IRS will settle, but you have to show them why they should, using their own rules.

With this understanding and other counsel from our experienced Chicago IRS debt settlement professionals, you may be able to achieve an OIC that dramatically minimizes your tax debt.

To find out if you qualify for the OIC program from the IRS, call The Tax Defenders at (312) 345-5440 today.

Offer in Compromise Options

With help from our knowledgeable IRS debt relief firm in Chicago, you may be able to resolve your debt with the Internal Revenue Service by submitting an Offer in Compromise. These remedies vary and depend on the circumstances of the taxpayer and the willingness of the IRS to agree to the OIC.

Within the OIC program, there are three designations of settlements, which are:

  • Doubt as to Liability – settlement is actual taxes due as opposed to total tax debt including interest and penalties
  • Efficient Tax Administration – settlement is calculated taking into account special circumstances such as severe financial hardship
  • Doubt as to Collectability – settlement is calculated by a formula of the net assets added to a multiple of income minus expenses

You can depend on honesty from our team. We will not gloss over the rough parts that will later take you by surprise. Each case is unique and we look at all your extenuating circumstances before determining if an OIC is right for you and telling you the likelihood of it getting accepted by the IRS.
