Recently, an offer in compromise that was submitted on behalf of a client was accepted by the IRS. The firm settled almost $200,000 in liability for just under $10,000. The backstory is that one of our clients had run into trouble when a family business failed, leaving a substantial payroll tax liability.

The IRS assessed the client with the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty. Due to the business failure, the client also fell behind on his personal tax return liability as well. As a result, the client had substantial liability. Years later, the client had a steady income again but was worried the IRS would seize his paycheck. The client then consulted with The Law Offices of Stuart Lee Sherman about what he should do. Using the information provided by the client, our firm was able to submit an offer in compromise on behalf of the client. After the IRS reviewed the offer it concluded that the offer should be accepted.
