A message from Robert T. Leonard, Attorney & CPA (inactive)
“During this unprecedented time the Government is taking steps to help taxpayers. In addition to the $2 trillion stimulus bill the IRS has relaxed its guidelines and conditions for its premier taxpayer relief program – called the Offer in Compromise. The IRS is processing Offer’s at this time and based upon my recent conversations with offer in compromise specialists and appeals officers now is the time to submit yours. Like the stimulus bill, the IRS wants to assist taxpayers with tax debt and the offer in compromise program is the method to use.”
