For some people, an Offer in Compromise (OIC) can reduce their tax liability. To qualify, a person will need to satisfy one of two conditions:
- There is some doubt the IRS will actually be able to collect the tax bill
- Paying the tax bill will cause “economic hardship” or would otherwise by “unfair”
