Offers - Process

An Offer in Compromise is a process whereby the taxpayer offers the government a reduced sum of money in order to settle a delinquent tax bill.

An offer is compromise is not an amnesty program, nor is it motivated by the governments' desire to cut delinquent taxpayers a break. Rather, it is a calculated business decision by the taxing agencies to accept a smaller sum in lieu of spending the collection resources on chasing the taxpayer until the statute of limitation on collecting the tax runs out.
