Requirements for Full Evaluation of an Offer In Compromise

In order for an Offer In Compromise to be fully evaluated by the IRS, the taxpayer must have completed the following steps prior to submitting the offer:

1) File all tax returns legally required to be filed

2) Make all required federal employment tax deposits, if applicable

3) Make all required estimated payments for the current tax year.

When submitting the Offer In Compromise for processing and evaluation, the taxpayer must include the following:

1) A complete, accurate, and current year Form 656, and

2) A complete, accurate, and current year Form 433-A and or Form 433-B if applicable.

The Internal Revenue Service will only consider those offers utilizing current forms. The IRS will not consider offers received on outdated forms or without the required information statements included.

All require corroborating documents which includes three months of recent bank statements and proof of certain expenses must be included.

    You may deduct qelfiaiud medical expenses you pay for yourself, your spouse, and your dependents, including a person you claim as a dependent under a Multiple Support Agreement. You can also deduct medical expenses you paid for someone who would have qelfiaiud as your dependent for the purpose of taking personal exemptions except that the person did not meet the gross income or joint return test. You deduct medical expenses on Form 1040, Schedule A (PDF), Itemized Deductions. The total of all allowable medical expenses must be reduced by 7.5% of your Adjusted Gross Income. For more information, refer to Publication 502, Medical and Dental Expenses.
