Oh my goodness - I did it! Last weekend I was headed to my aunt and uncle's for lunch with the "old" folks in my life. While my kids are home sanitizing the counter-tops for the umpteenth time, my parents are walking the beach and going to the market almost daily, just to get out of the house. Perspective I suppose. But back to the story......last Saturday I was headed to my aunt and uncle's for lunch and had a few extra minutes, so I did some recon. I went over to the shopping center near their home in Newport Beach. Fashion Island is an outdoor mall with beautiful stores and great restaurants. I had heard Orange County was opening up and I had heard a rumor that my favorite exercise clothing store would be open Memorial Day weekend, so I wanted to see for myself. As I walked up, I not...

The IRS Offer in Compromise is the name of a tax settlement. These sound like a gimmick when you hear them on the radio/tv, but they actually work.

An IRS installment agreement is a monthly payment plan with the IRS when you have tax debt and can’t pay in full. You need to keep in mind that even though you set up an IRS installment agreement, penalties and interest will continue to accrue on any outstanding tax debt, just like a credit card. Also, once an installment agreement is set up, if you subsequently file a tax return with tax debt, and do not pay by the due date, your installment agreement will go into default. An IRS installment agreement can not be set up until all required tax returns have been filed. There are several types of IRS installment agreements and the following are the qualifications, fees and methods to set each of them up.Automatic Installment Agreement          Taxpayer owes less than $10,000          Taxpa...
