Many promise to get your tax debts reduced to half or less. Most of them are fraudulent. What they promise is an Offer in Compromise with the IRS - a deal to settle tax debts for less than the full amount. What they don't tell you is that the 1RS rejects 75 percent of such offers. And when they DO accept such a compromise, the taxpayer-in-trouble may lose much of his or her savings and other property, equity in real estate and cars and future income, less basic living expenses. There are better options. If yours is a short-time crunch, a 120-day extension may be available. Or you can request payment in installments up to 60 months. If the amount is $10,000 or less, the 1RS consent is usually automatic if your tax record is clean. There may be penalties, fees and interest involved. Even paying by credit card may be a less-expensive option. When you need dependable tax relief, you can trust the advice you get at: '1 307 W.
