Taxpayers may be eligible for an Offer in Compromise if they owe more tax than they can pay. However, not everyone qualifies for an Offer in Compromise. To determine eligibility, taxpayers must ask these questions:
Do I receive Social Security income, Social Security disability, pension payments or public assistance?
Am I over age 60?
Are my total assets worth less than I owe?
Have I had a significant reduction in income?
Is my tax debt older than seven years?
Are my tax returns in full filing compliance?
Is the business that I was a principal member of defunct and closed?
Taxpayers who answer yes to two or more questions may be eligible for an Offer in Compromise.
When you sign and submit an offer, you agree to the waiver and suspension of any statutory periods of limitations for assessment and collections of the tax liability while the offer-in-compromise is pending, during the time the offered amount remains unpaid and for one (1) year after the satisfaction of the terms of the offer-in-compromise.
