As we are nearing the end of 2012 -- most people have a good understanding whether they will owe taxes for 2012 or NOT. If you are going to owe taxes for 2012 - or are about to file your 2011 return and owe,
then it's time to think when you should file your Offer in Compromise to settle your debt.
The timing is delicate and truly depends on where you stand in the collection process. If you are in collections OR your case is assigned to a Revenue Officer -- then you might need to work out an installment agreement or show that you are uncollectible NOW...then wait UNTIL 2013 - to file your Offer in Compromise.
We have written about the RULE CHANGES in the Offer in Compromise extensively this year. Here's our articles...
