IRS Outlines Additional Steps to Assist Unemployed Taxpayers
The Internal Revenue Service recently announced that they will be taking additional steps to assist people having difficulties meeting their tax obligations because of unemployment or financial problems.
This is a big step for helping taxpayers, as previously the IRS Offer in Compromise unit would typically reject the offer of a taxpayer who has no income, or has unemployment income only. They would use the income valuation of past employment to calculate the taxpayers ability to pay, which was in no way representative of what was reality. This action now opens the door for the submission of valid offers of a tax settlement for qualifying taxpayers who are unemployed, but previously could not qualify for the program.
The IRS offer in compromise program is an agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS to settle the taxpayer’s IRS debt for less than the full amount owed.
