Q: Why would
the IRS want to settle a tax debt?
A: The IRS understands there are situations in which they will not be able to
collect the entire amount of tax a citizen owes no matter what they do or how
hard they try. By agreeing to settle a tax debt, the IRS brings the Taxpayer
back into the system. The Taxpayer is required to stay in compliance and pay
their taxes on time after tax relief is granted. It's a win-win situation for
the Taxpayer and the IRS.
