BE CAREFUL of TAX RELIEF AGENCIES. The only professional with the fiduciary duty to their client is an attorney. This means that your attorney will look after your best interest and will continue working on your behalf until a satisfactory result has been achieved. Tax relief companies will most likely charge an up-front fee and will not likely obtain the same settlement as an attorney. The IRS is relentless! Your tax attorney will be, as well. If you are seeking help with the IRS, your best bet is to avoid tax relief companies and turn to a licensed tax attorney for the level of assistance you need to settle your debt.


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.

Discharge of tax in bankruptcy

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.
Bankruptcy is not a solution to be taken lightly. Obtain the necessary information from the Law Offices of Matthew T. Desrochers, P.C. Through legal consultation and representation, when necessary, you can look forward to a brighter future.
