Relieving Your Tax Debt
This often involves tough decisions. We talk to many taxpayers who are upside down on their homes, a common problem since the recession. Many of the solutions that the Revenue Code offers are not what a person might consider ideal, but are in fact what the revenue dictates is available to them. Case in point. A gentleman we spoke to several years ago qualified for an Offer in Compromise of $8000 on a $40,000 tax debt. You would think he would be happy. Instead he cursed at us, and wanted a refund.
His rationale was that, when the IRS ultimately accepted, they accepted for $5000, not $8000. His rationale was we did not do our job. After speaking to him, it was determined that the second job he had, at the point in time we submitted the Offer (selling Insurance Annuities on the weekends) he quit prior to when the IRS accepted his Offer. Therefore the IRS accepted for a lower amount. I told him that we had no idea he did that, and that information was never given to us. It didn’t matter to him.
Now what’s interesting about this is that if we were stock brokers and for the $5000 the IRS accepted the Offer, he earned $40,000, he would be tinkled pink. But that was not money in his pocket, only a debt removed, which he didn’t view as being too real. The point is it had the exact same impact on his Net Worth.
