IRS, on May 21st,
changes to the Offer in
Compromise Rules. At long
last, these changes make it far
more possible to compromise
tax than under the old
law. In fact, the old Offer
in Compromise laws were
frequently misused by many
of the "tax relief firms" that
promised gold and delivered
chop liver. The new changes
are important and if you have
lingering tax debt, you should
see if you qualify for this
program. Even if you don't,
we can work out reasonable
installment payment plans
that are affordable.
