For offer in compromise personal income tax 1040 liability issues, file it yourself or use an inexperienced representative and you will either be turned down or overpay.
IRS offers are done for each entity and this is best handled by someone experienced in working on IRS tax problems.
Not using a professional who understands how the IRS works could cost you money.
I know people who had their bank account and paycheck levied after the offer was acknowledged as received by the offer division. The general rule was collections would then stop. Now collections don’t stop until the offer is officially assigned to an offer professional. That can happen months later after the IRS corresponds with you for additional information.
Our office would never have let this happen.
Don’t fall for the tricks! Don’t believe what you read on the IRS’s website.
Offer In Compromise Personal Income – Settling For Less
IRS offers are done separately for each entity. Individuals, couples with joint liabilities, corporations, partnerships, trusts, all file separate offer forms.
Individual Taxes Owed Separately Or Jointly
If you owe taxes as an individual only, you file one offer on compromise form 656. On the form you list your personal income tax 1040 liability and any other tax such as a trust fund (civil penalty) charged to you.
If you are married and have a liability from any years you filed jointly with your spouse, you must also file a joint offer for 656 for those years.
If your spouse is not filing an offer those years, you could list it on your individual application. If accepted, only you get the tax deduction.
Your spouse or ex-spouse will still owe the total amount. They must take action separately to get any reduction.
