Tax Settlement

Civic Tax Relief can help you determine whether a settlement can be reached with the IRS or state taxing authorities. Depending on the situation, a tax settlement allows taxpayers to satisfy outstanding debt for less than the original amount owed. Whether or not a settlement can be reached, Civic Tax Relief can help you negotiate with taxing authorities to explore settlement alternatives.

How does a settlement work?

First, a taxpayer must meet the qualifications for one of the IRS tax settlement programs. After completing and returning the appropriate forms to the IRS, the taxpayer will begin the settlement process. This is where tax resolution firms like Civic Tax Relief can help improve the outcome of the settlement. The settlement terms dictate the timing and payoff amount; the tax liability is considered fully resolved if all stipulations and deadlines are fulfilled.

What are the primary settlement benefits?
  • Minimize payment to the IRS: Depending on your individual situation, a tax settlement may result in a lower payment to the IRS. Multiple factors play into the unique terms of the settlement, which is why a free consultation is recommended.
  • Minimize liens and garnishments: A tax settlement may prevent the placement of a tax lien on your home or business, wage garnishment or a bank levy on your account.
Who is eligible?

IRS settlements may be available to individuals that are struggling with their tax debts or have valid reasons to abate their penalties. Not everyone is eligible for tax settlement and approval is subject on a case by case basis. In fact, most taxpayers are not eligible – only specific cases qualify.


"I owed the IRS 19k dollars and had been on a payment plan with them of $100 a month for what seemed like forever—as it was mostly all interest. I was referred over by a friend of mine who also had tax debt and was able to get it resolved through Civic Tax. Frankly I’m glad I contacted you guys. I was eligible for an offer in compromise and got it resolved for a fraction of what I owed and was just making payments towards interest. I wish I would have contacted you guys a long time ago. Thanks again!"

"I signed up with Civic Tax Relief for investigation and resolution of my tax matter. The IRS was harassing me over unfiled returns and threatened me with $65,000 in proposed taxes, penalties and interest. Civic Tax Relief quickly investigated my matter, and contacted the IRS on the first day that I enrolled. The calls and harassment immediately stopped. Civic Tax Relief helped me file my returns, and eliminated my liability. Everyone at Civic Tax Relief was professional and helpful at all times, which put my mind at ease."

"I first received a notice from the IRS regarding a 1099 tax debt I received from 2012. After calling the number on the notice repeatedly and not even being able to get a representative on the line for over an hour and half, I heard CTR’s advertisement on Pandora. I gave them a call and after speaking with one of their associates, I immediately felt that I was in great hands, and that I no longer had to worry about the IRS diving into my paychecks or bank accounts. Not only were their representatives knowledgeable and professional, they really gave me the peace of mind that I was going to find the best possible resolution for my particular tax debt. Thank you, CTR, for giving me the light at the end of the tunnel!"
