The IRS Offer in Compromise program is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) program under 26 U.S.C. § 7122 which allows qualified individuals with an unpaid tax debt to negotiate a settled amount that is less than the total owed to clear the debt.

The IRS Offer in Compromise package will determine if the taxpayer is eligible for the IRS offer in compromise program or not. The objective of the IRS Offer in Compromise program is to accept a settlement compromise when acceptance is in the best interests of both the taxpayer and the government and promotes voluntary compliance with all future payment and filing requirements.

Since 2012 the IRS has been much more willing to accept an IRS Offer in Compromise with taxpayers with overwhelming tax debt than in the prior decade. IRC §7122 permits the IRS to accept an IRS offer in compromise in settlement of tax obligations for less than the full outstanding tax debt. The willingness of the IRS to exercise this authority has ebbed and flowed over the years. In 2012 as part of its Fresh Start initiatives, the IRS greatly liberalized the standards that it uses for an acceptable IRS Offer in Compromise. The statistics for some recent fiscal years are:

Offers in Compromise years: 2012 2013 2014
Number of offers received: 64,000 74,000 68,000
Number of offers accepted: 24,000 31,000 27,000
% accepted: 38% 42% 40%
