IRS Issues Warning on Offer in Compromise Promoters
For years, we have warned you to be very careful when you hire a firm to prepare and submit an Offer in Compromise to settle your unpaid Federal taxes. It's taken a long time, but the IRS has finally agreed and posted a warning you must read before you hire a tax resolution firm.
The Internal Revenue Service today issued a consumer alert advising
taxpayers to beware of claims by promoters that tax debts can be settled for
pennies on the dollar through the Offer in Compromise Program. Some promoters
are inappropriately advising indebted taxpayers to file an Offer in Compromise (OIC)
application with the IRS. This bad advice costs taxpayers money and time.
Please remember to take the following steps BEFORE signing a contract or paying any money to a firm to handle your Offer:
1) Talk only with a LICENSED tax practitioner. If the company you are considering hiring won't allow you to speak with an EA, CPA or attorney BEFORE you pay them, run as fast as you can to a legit tax pro;
2) Make certain that your licensed tax pro uses the IRS guidelines on allowable expenses and looks at your assets and liabilities. Without doing that, no one can assess your chances for a successful Offer;
4) Don't believe it if it sounds too good to be true. I know, I know. You've heard this a thousand times, but you hear it often because it's correct. Ask about the things that can go wrong with an Offer and ask what kind of success the company has had on its Offers;
5) Finally, use your own common sense. Stay away from slick sales people that have no license to protect when they screw up your case.

Here is a question we would like you to ask the Internal Revenue Service if you were a client of American Tax Relief. The IRS was aware for the past five years that American Tax Relief was defrauding taxpayers and yet the IRS did absolutely nothing to stop them. Why did it take the Federal Trade Commission to shut down their operation?
