In 2011, more than 8 million taxpayers entered IRS Collection – and only 20,000 received an offer in compromise. Does your client qualify? What is the offer amount and how is it computed? Is there really any negotiation involved? Who is likely to get an offer in compromise? Is an offer in compromise even the best collection alternative? This course will answer these common questions and provide you with the tools and knowledge to effectively advise your clients on this program.
