IRS Small Business/Self-Employed Division memorandum, Calculation of Reasonable Collection Potential in Certain Offers in Compromise Cases (Apr. 28, 2016)

IRS’s Small Business/Self-Employed Division (SB/SE) has instructed its Collection employees not to reject offers in compromise (OICs) by persons in the Cannabis / marijuana business, in states where marijuana sales are legal, merely on public policy grounds.

Offer in Compromise— OICs. Code Sec. 7122(a) authorizes IRS to compromise a taxpayer’s income tax liability. Code Sec. 7122(d)(1) gives IRS wide discretion to accept compromise offers and to prescribe guidelines “to determine whether an offer-in-compromise is adequate and should be accepted.” IRS will consider an OIC where: (1) the taxpayer is unable to pay the tax; (2) there is doubt as to the taxpayer’s liability for the tax; or (3) a compromise would promote effective tax administration because collection of the full amount of tax would cause economic hardship for the taxpayer, or compelling public policy or equity considerations provide a sufficient basis for compromising the liability. (Reg. § 301.7122-1(b)) There is doubt as to collectibility “in any case where the taxpayer’s assets and income are less than the full amount of the liability.” (Reg. § 301.7122-1(b)(2))

When a taxpayer decides to resolve and pay back the owed amount using any one of the IRS payment programs/filings/settlements, it is called a tax settlement. Internal Revenue Service or IRS offers a tax settlement if the concerned taxpayer is struggling to pay back the tax debts or if there is a valid reason to nullify the penalties. In fact, the IRS offers more than one way for taxpayers to settle their tax debts. While the debate about whether you will get a settlement or not depends upon your financial situation, the type of settlement you will be allowed to opt for is dependent on the severity of your monetary and financial situation / troubles. Even though the IRS prefers that every individual or business pays his/her taxes completely, they can make some exceptions if the situation arises.

The penalty amount is equal to the total amount of the tax that was not paid, up to the full amount. This is why it is sometimes known as the 100% penalty.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.

Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.

I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
