Offers in Compromise

  • Registration Closed

Under the right circumstances, an Offer in Compromise is a great way to address overwhelming IRS debt. Learn how to identify clients that are candidates for this type of strategy, as well as the procedural aspects of an Offer in Compromise (OIC). We will cover the main components of an OIC, compliance issues, and the IRS’ formula for OIC’s. We will also cover examples of situations in which an Offer in Compromise may not be an appropriate strategy. 

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Educate clients with outstanding tax liabilities on the three different methods for requesting a compromise of that liability with the Internal Revenue Service.
  • Diagnose which of the various options may be the best path forward for the client.
  • Identify whether bankruptcy may be a better, more holistic alternative to compromising/resolving their outstanding debts.
