Sherri Gastelum, the President of Platinum Tax Defenders is making an effort to educate taxpayers on the updates and expansions of the OIC to help individuals make better choices during the tax filling season and get the much needed help with back taxes.
"This phase of Fresh Start will assist some taxpayers who have faced the most financial hardship in recent years," said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman. "It is part of our multiyear effort to help taxpayers who are struggling to make ends meet."
“The IRS has created special programs that allows the taxpayers to defer payments on back taxes for a certain amount of time,” says one of the specialists at Platinum Tax Defenders ”. Offer In Compromise is an agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS that settles the taxpayer’s tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed.
According to the guidelines provided by the IRS, an OIC i s generally not accepted if the IRS believes the liability can be paid in full as a lump sum or a through payment agreement. This program can be very helpful, and it is important that taxpayers follow each step very carefully throughout the application process in order to become and remain eligible. This can be time consuming and requires much focus and negotiation skills.
