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))
