Question: Like others who have written in questions to you, I have significant tax debt. I am interested in the Offer in Compromise option, but you have said one must qualify for this option. What if I donâ€™t qualify?
Answer:Â Thatâ€™s an excellent question â€” one to which every person who has tax debt and is considering an Offer in Compromise should understand the answer.
Youâ€™re right in saying you must qualify for the Offer in Compromise â€” that is to say, not everyone is eligible. For those who do not know, the Offer in Compromise program allows taxpayers with significant tax debt to negotiate settlement amounts with the IRS that often come to a small percentage of what they owe. Hereâ€™s the important part: To qualify for the program, the IRS must believe you do not have a reasonable ability to pay your debt in full, even over time.
This is the situation for many people with tax debt. Their debt may be related to a failed business, poor tax advice, or rising and unexpected costs in their lives, such as medical costs. In short, these are people whose financial situations have changed so drastically they will not be able to pay their tax debt.
But the Offer in Compromise isnâ€™t the only option. For those with tax debt who do not qualify for the Offer in Compromise program, a good option is the Installment Agreement. Under this agreement, the taxpayer works out a payment plan with the IRS that eliminates the tax debt over time. This is similar to a monthly car payment â€” a large enough payment to pay off a significant debt over time but not so large that it will adversely affect your lifestyle.
