New Offer in Compromise Application Multi Agency OIC Form
PURPOSE OF BULLETIN
To inform staff that California's three tax agencies, the Employment Development Department, Board of Equalization, and Franchise Tax Board have streamlined the offer-in-compromise application process for California taxpayers.
When taxpayers are unable to pay their tax liabilities to the State, they can apply for an offer-in-compromise. This allows taxpayers to negotiate a lesser amount for the payment of their non-disputed tax liabilities.
In order to apply for an offer-in-compromise with EDD, BOE, or FTB, a separate application was needed for each agency.
To relieve some of the paperwork burden for taxpayers or their representatives, the State's three agencies developed a single offer-in-compromise application form; Form DE 999CA, Multi-Agency Form for Offer in Compromise. Taxpayers can use this form for any of the three agencies.
Individual agencies must still negotiate each offer-in-compromise separately for their respective taxes. For example, only the FTB can negotiate a state income tax liability.
