Tax Resolution Services

Offers in Compromise

An Offer in Compromise is a settlement with the Internal Revenue Service (or state taxing authority) for less than the full amount owed.

Penalty Abatement

If you do not qualify for an Offer in Compromise, an alternative method of reducing the amount that you owe is to obtain an Abatement of Penalties.

Installment Agreements

If you do not qualify for an Offer in Compromise, an Installment Agreement may be the best way to resolve your tax liability.

Trust Fund Recovery Penalties

Shareholders, Officers, and certain employees can be held personally liable for a corporation’s failure to pay certain payroll taxes.

Innocent Spouse Tax Relief

Individuals who meet the criteria for Innocent Spouse Relief can be relieved of liability.

Tax Appeals

There are two primary avenues of appeal within the IRS: Collection Appeals Program (CAP), and Request for a Collection Due Process Hearing (CDP).
