“Rejecting” a Pending Offer.
The IRS can “reject” a processable Offer in Compromise application for many reasons. The IRS defines “reject” as a non-acceptance recommendation of any OIC offer that includes appellate rights. IRM § 184.108.40.206.6(1) (12-20-2018). The rejection of an application closes the Offer in Compromise application review process. Interest and penalties are stopped while an Offer in Compromise application is being considered, but interest and penalties are applied retroactively upon rejection.
