Pending Offer In Compromise

When is OIC Pending?

The offer is pending starting with the date an authorized Internal Revenue Service official signs the 656 form "Offer in Compromise". The offer remains pending until an authorized IRS official accepts, rejects, returns or acknowledges withdrawal of the offer in writing.


If the OIC is rejected you can appeal the rejection decision of the officer, the IRS will continue to treat the offer as pending until the Appeals Office accepts or rejects the offer in writing. If you don't file an Appeal within 30 days of the date the IRS notifies you of the right to Appeal (or protest) the decision, you will waive the right to a hearing before the Appeals Office about the offer in compromise.

If you have outstanding tax debt and are looking for Tax Relief, consult with an experienced tax attorney to see if you qualify for an Offer In Compromise.
