How Do I Prepare IRS form 656 Offer in Compromise
Sep 2, 2014 by
The average IRS Offer in Compromise takes a tax professional about 35 hours to complete from start to finish. Multiply that by an hourly rate of just $100 and you have a $3,500 fee on your hands. Good luck finding a tax resolution professional that's any good to work for less than $200 per hour. And if you're hiring an attorney, that hourly rate is likely to be between $250 and $500.
A lot of tax resolution professionals out there sell their clients the IRS Offer in Compromise before they look at one financial document. It is difficult to know whether or not a delinquent taxpayer qualifies for any back tax resolution through the IRS without first taking a look at their financial information and documents. What I'm trying to tell you is that you'd better be sure that you qualify for the OIC before paying big money to a tax professional to prepare and submit it for you.
At Fresh Start Tax Relief we advise our clients whether or not they qualify for the IRS OIC and if they do qualify, we provide them with detailed information about how to correctly prepare their OIC including form 433-A (OIC), which is the key section of the Offer.
Fresh Start's service cost our clients $499 no matter the size of their IRS tax debt. It's worth the money to find out how bad your situation is, which options are available to you to fix it, a resolution strategy tailored to your specific circumstances and directions on how to implement the strategy.
