Can You Really Settle Your IRS Tax Debt for Less Than What You Owe?

One of the most common questions I get is whether IRS tax debts can be settled for less than the amount owed. The simple answer is yes.....if you qualify. The program that allows you to settle your tax debt is called the Offer in Compromise program. When you hear all these TV and radio ads talking about settling your tax debt for "pennies on the dollar," they're talking about the Offer in Compromise program. I don't like those ads because they can often be a bit misleading. Although I've handled plenty of Offer in Compromise applications, I don't like to tell people that they can always settle their tax debt at a discount because there are many times when the IRS won't accept an Offer in Compromise application.
