Offer in Compromise (OIC) is a program within the IRS that allows a taxpayer to avoid paying outstanding taxes. This program eliminates ALL INTEREST AND PENALTIES. Attorney Matthew Desrochers is knowledgeable about the precise approval, which is not granted to every person who applies; it is important to speak with a professional who knows this program inside and out.

Sample of OIC guidelines

  • Taxpayers' disposable income based upon household size and location within the U.S.
  • Liquidation analysis will assess the assets owned by the taxpayer.

This program will also remove ALL liens, wage garnishments, and bank levies including items related to your Credit Report.

If your situation meets these specific criteria, our office can prepare and negotiate a reasonable resolution with the IRS for you.

The general rule is that taxes are not discharged in a bankruptcy. Taxes are referred to as ‘priority debt' in bankruptcy. However, there are specific and technical rules that are an exception to the general rule.

Payroll taxes that are withheld by you as the employer, the trust fund portion are not dischargeable in bankruptcy.

Whether other tax liabilities may be discharged in your Chapter 7 bankruptcy case begins with determining whether a tax returned was filed. If not, tax is not dischargeable in your bankruptcy case. If the tax liability is more than three years old, and the return was filed more than two years prior to the filing of the bankruptcy petition, and more than 240 days, plus 30 days after an assessment, and the return was not fraudulent, then the tax may be eligible to be discharged in your bankruptcy. Yes, you need a tax transcript to identify the exact dates that returns were filed, and extensions granted, and exact dates for assessments, to calculate precisely when a bankruptcy petition should be filed in order to discharge tax liability.
