While the IRS is quite stringent about enforcing penalties for missed tax deadlines, there is a possibility that you can avoid paying your full tax liability in one go. Given how the cumulative of all tax penalties can raise your tax bills by as much as 25%, it’s understandable that you may feel this massive tax burden like a vice around your neck.
However, the IRS offers quite a few options to either reduce your total liability or at least offer a flexible payment plan that allows you to pay off your entire tax debt. Before they offer you these plans, you’ll need to follow through a stringent review process to justify why you deserve this leniency. It’s difficult to make a case by yourself—unless you’re trained in tax accounting and understand tax code procedures well enough to use them during your negotiations.
Given the technical nature of these processes, it’s best if you worked with a tax debt relief service like Empire Tax Solutions to help you out. We’ve worked for years helping clients negotiate settlement and payment plans with the IRS, while minimizing their tax liabilities and helping them meet their tax obligations.
All of the settlement options offered by the IRS fundamentally fall under the heading of Offers-In-Compromise (OICs). There are three different kinds of OICs:
As you can likely tell, to successfully appeal and qualify for an OIC you must have a deep understanding of tax law and IRS procedures. Additionally, it requires expertise to negotiate penalty abatements—so you can further minimize your tax liabilities.
