Oic? partial payment? penalty abatement?


Client is a well to do college prof. Ex-W sues for back alimony over military pension? Gets 30K. Prof is then taxed on that 30 for about 15K, now with P & I. Very close legal question on the 30K the IRS taxed…IRS may have been wrong, but let’s just say it could have gone either way.
Any recourse through OIC, Streamline…Partial Payment? Abatement does seem an option and may be only one. Appeal time has passed on the IRS ruling.
Your thoughts? Thank you
