Let’s face it. The IRS wants to collect its tax debt. And if you owe a large sum, they especially want to bring that money in. Sure, they aren’t paid on commission, but this is their job, and, probably like all of us, they are held to certain marks and standards. With that being said, a settlement with the IRS (also called an Offer in Compromise) isn’t impossible (it’s just not exactly easy, either).
