An offer in compromise (OIC) is an option offered by the IRS that allows a taxpayer to settle their debt for less than what is actually owed. This option is great for a taxpayer because it gives them a fresh start with the IRS, but the ultimate goal of an offer in compromise is to come to a legal agreement for payment that’s in the best interest of both the taxpayer and the IRS.

This course offers a fundamental exploration into the world of IRS Offers in Compromise, aimed at tax practitioners seeking to broaden their service offerings. It delivers practical insights into evaluating if and when an Offer in Compromise represents the optimal route for clients challenged by outstanding IRS debts. Financial professionals will delve into the essential criteria for taxpayer eligibility, discovering a clear path to assist clients in navigating this complex filing option.

Structured in an easy-to-follow format, this class provides the tools to assess a taxpayer’s position accurately, understand the requisite information for an Offer in Compromise, and handle the form preparation with confidence. With an array of sample forms and financial statements at hand, practitioners will leave the course equipped to effectively manage client consultations from start to finish, instilling a deepened confidence in their tax negotiation capabilities.
