However, during such negotiation, you must pay any new taxes that become due. Failing to do so will result in the IRS rejecting your Offer In Compromise. If the IRS accepts your offer, you will make a lump sum payment to settle your debt. Sometimes the IRS will allow you to break your lump sum payment up into multiple payments, but this usually results in you paying a little more than you would if it was one lump sum payment.

We can help you obtain a Currently Uncollectable Status.
