State of Michigan Offer-in-Compromise

The State of Michigan recently passed new legislation under Public Act 240 of 2014 which will now allow Offers-in-Compromise, effective January 1st, 2015. Similar to the federal Offer-in-Compromise program, it is geared towards taxpayers with severe hardship and extenuating circumstances. An offer can be made to pay the State less than what is currently owed, if:

  • A federal Offer-in-Compromise has been given for the same year.
  • Doubt exists as to the amount of taxes owed by the taxpayer.
  • Taxpayer provides documentation to prove they cannot pay the amount owed to the State.

Application material will become available sometime in the fall of 2014. But applications cannot be sent in until January 1st of 2015.

To learn more about Offers-in-Compromises under the federal program, refer to IRS Offer-in-Compromise.

Call Christy at 586-323-2360 to begin work on your Offer-in-Compromise.
