Using the Offer in Compromise Program.
The Offer in Compromise Program allows taxpayers who do not have, and will not have in the foreseeable future, the money, assets or means to pay their tax liability in full to offer a lesser amount for complete satisfaction of a nondisputed final tax liability. The FTB's OIC program is authorized by RTC Sec. 19443.
