Offers in Compromise
Modesto Offers in Compromise Attorney
Experienced Lawyer to Handle Offers in Compromise
If you have been assessed with an unexpected tax bill, you may be able to settle the debt for substantially less than the stated amount due, using a strategy called an offer in compromise (OIC). In some situations, taxpayers have been able to settle tax debts for less than one percent of the actual bill through the use of an OIC. Unfortunately, over 75% of offers in compromise are rejected by the IRS. For success with your offer in compromise, you want an experienced tax attorney, one who is intimately familiar with the process and will provide you with the advice you need to make informed decisions.

Settle Your Tax Debt at a Discount
When you enter into an offer in compromise with the IRS or any other taxing authority, the government has essentially agreed to a negotiated settlement of your debt, allowing you to pay less than the stated amount due in exchange for the discharge of the debt. Often, the IRS will allow you to enter into a payment plan as part of an OIC. While you have no right to a reduction of a tax bill, the government must generally give a properly submitted OIC fair consideration.
Attorney Hogan will help you initiate an application for an offer in compromise, which requires that you complete and submit IRS form 656. Mr. Hogan will help you file all required forms and any additional documentation that will enhance the likelihood that your applications will be approved. The IRS often requires extensive financial information, including pay information, bank records, vehicle registrations and other documents. If your OIC has been rejected, lawyer Hogan has the experience to assist you with your appeal to the IRS Appeals Office.
