Last week I discussed the rejection of an Offer because the income was too high and then the Offer applicant was laid off. I discussed the necessity of having a source of income to file an Offer at any time. This week I will assume the Offer applicant can find some kind of job, even if at much lower pay. In that case we can look at another possibility. When an Offer is rejected, you have 30 days from the date of the official rejection letter to file an appeal if you think the Offer Specialist was wrong in rejecting your Offer. There is no cost to file an appeal, whereas if you file a new Offer, there will be a new $186.00 filing fee. In the case of being laid off and then finding lower paying work, you have grounds for appeal even if the Offer Specialist’s analysis was correct since your income has changed from that which the Offer Specialist used. If it has been more that 30 days since the Offer was rejected we can file a new Offer using your current financial information. Either way, we can make sure the IRS knows your true situation and ability to pay.
