Settle Your Tax Debt with Form 656

An Insider's Guide to Offer in Compromise

Dealing with overwhelming tax debt can be a stressful experience. However, there is hope for those who find it challenging to pay their full tax liability. The IRS offers a program called Offer in Compromise (OIC) that allows eligible individuals to settle their tax debt for less than the total amount owed. In this informative blog post, we will delve into the details of Form 656, the application for Offer in Compromise, and how Priority Tax Relief can assist you in navigating this process.

Understanding Form 656 and Offer in Compromise

When you apply for an Offer in Compromise, Form 656 becomes a crucial document. You must submit this official application to initiate the process of negotiating a settlement with the IRS. By submitting Form 656, you actively request the IRS to accept a compromise on your tax debt, considering your financial circumstances. The IRS carefully evaluates this offer, taking into account factors such as your ability to pay, income, expenses, and asset equity.

Eligibility for Offer in Compromise

To qualify for an Offer in Compromise, you must meet specific requirements. Firstly, you must actively file all necessary tax returns and fulfill all required estimated payments. Additionally, you should not be engaged in an open bankruptcy proceeding. If you are applying for the current year, you must possess a valid extension for the return.
