An individual residing in Thornton, Colorado owing $165,145 to the IRS hired Timberline to help protect her from potential levies and provide a resolution to her tax balance. The Enrolled Agent assigned to the case immediately obtained a hold of enforced collection action. Once that was in place, he immediately began work on completing a full financial analysis and determined the best course of action was to submit an Offer In Compromise to settle the tax balance. The Enrolled Agent engaged in strenuous negotiations with the Internal Revenue Service, and it was proven that $100 was the most the federal government could expect to collect from the taxpayer. At the conclusion of the negotiations, the IRS agreed with the proposed Offer in Compromise for $100, thus saving the taxpayer over $165,000.
