Offer in Compromise: State of California Income Tax
Clients originally owed the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) $233,000 of income tax for tax years 1994, 1995, and 1996.
We first negotiated a deferral or hold on collections giving our clients time to attempt to obtain alternative financing to pay off the liabilities. When financing was denied, and after that deferral expired, we entered negotiations with the FTB for an Offer in Compromise (OIC). The FTB settled the liability for a lump sum payment of $50,000 which represents a reduction of total liability by $183,000.
