Michigan Enacts Offer-In-Compromise Program

June 27, 2014

With Governor Snyder’s signing of Enrolled HB 4003, the State of Michigan has joined more than 40 other States and the federal government by enacting an offer-in-compromise program. This program replaces Michigan’s unique and inflexible prior policy, which was an absolute prohibition of any compromise of a final tax liability under any circumstances.

The creation of the Michigan offer-in-compromise program was not an easy task, and involved nearly ten years of work by the Taxation Section of the State Bar of Michigan, along with support from the Alvin L. Storrs Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic of the Michigan State University College of Law, and both leadership and support from the Michigan Chamber of Commerce.

To learn more about this offer-in-compromise program, or any other federal, state or local tax matters, please contact the author of this alert, Wayne D. Roberts, at 616-776-7514 or wroberts@dykema.com.
