First, a 656-L is a form used for an Offer in Compromise.
More specifically, a Doubt of Liability Offer in Compromise.
Thus you are stating that you do not owe what is stated that you owe. If this is the case, the 656-L is not likely your best option in resolving the matter.
Why does the IRS state you owe and why do you beleive you do not? This will help me determine the better option for resolvin the issue you are having.
I am itemized the problem area local audit agent & IRS lawyer did not give me credit.
I own and managing 1 real propertyXXXXXhouse for rental. year 2006, I reported rental income 21000 dollar. but local auditor reported as if I did not made report.
this is malicious wrong report. I spet repair cost in roof and central air condition replace in previous year, I can deduct the amorization cost. but loacal auditor did not gave me these credit. also bacuae of bad tennats, I lost money in this rentl house, Ican claim passive loss 35000 dollar each year. But auditor did not gvave me this credit. I was also engaing in consulting, investing stock market with research lab with borrowed money from banks. I worked with law firms, other consultants, and brokerage firm. we all spend a lot of time and effort but last minute withdraw of large investor make us fail our effort. we all lost money. IRS 1120S department told us that we can deduct business expenses but loacl auditor did not recognized this deduction. I mad amended return\
1040X year 2006, year 2007, and year 2008. According to these report, I did not own any money at all. I worked examination'f office 6 months, examination office told me that I do not owe year 2006,2007 and year 2008, I ow 1812 pus interest. because of mistake of local agent, it triggered the letter of deficiency. I met appeal officer IRS chief cousel and during my initial meeting, I corrected a lot of mistakess for all three years, year 2006, 2007 and year 2008 and drop the penalty. which reduced from @27000 to 15000 dollar. When he brothought back calccalculation in next meeting, there were still mistakes. In other words the pretrial stipitulation was not finined. He told me that he stop the amended return processing. He told me that forget about past. My wife was sick and tired and do not want to deal with this ordeal, I agree with her and sign decision entry paper. a few day later, I asked the motion withdrawl of decision entry
. tax court judge, grant the hearing, I asked the judge whether IRS chier coucle had power to stop amended process. I also mention the wrong report of rental income report of 21000 dollar and decinial of passive loss claim of 250 dolar each year for year 206,207 and 2008. Judge did not answer my question and disapear from the court. after court meting IRS lawyer told me that, Ican go to aply 656 ofer in compromise.

Myemail adresXXX@XXXXXX.XXX thank you for your kind asistance.i There was mistake insteadj of $ 35000, it is 25000 each year( pass loss)
tax lawyer told me that if I do not file the petittion to us tax court. IRS can do any thing. So I filed petition. mention the incorrect audit and wrong number and mistakes. IRS chief coucle responded me They are all correct in number and legal matter. in pretiral
stipitulation, I corrected many mistakes which prove to be wrong on the part of IRS lawyer and audit. So thus legal response was wrong.
First, filing a 656-L is not going to be successful. It is not the correct way to address the issue.
Your only option is an audit reconsideration which is only available if you did not sign the notice of deficiency.
If the appeals case is still in court, you need to focus there.
I cannot state whether your deductions are correct or not since that is not the issue. Providing proof of such is the issue. I can say, a $35K passive loss is not allowed as it caps at $25K for rental properties on a yearly basis so that is $10K per year which could easily equal you owing $15k over 3 years with penalties and interest.
The point is this. You are wasting your time with the 656. Your only option is to request an audit reconsideration or continue the appeal if open. Again, you are without options if you signed the deficiency letter. Publication 3598 states the process of requesting an audit reconsideration. There is no form. Also, the name is XXXXX XXXXX The IRS will not reconsider any information already provided. They will only review new information that was not previously provided so make sure to state such.
The passiv e loss was not $35000. What I meant was $ 25000 dollar. My 1120 S corporation consulting cost of doing business was not recognized contrary to IRS 1120S department told me that I can deduct these expensis. Also IRS ;lawyer stop
the myt amended return year 2006,2007 and 2008 1040X. I asked the tax court judege that does he had that kind power ? jedge did not answer. I was asking legal question.
but no body answer. I work wieh examination offfice, they told me I do not owe year 2006,2007 and year 2008, I owe 1812plus interest. IRS lawyer had power to overuled
the examination office ? ME and my wife income is social security, and pension and annuity about 40.000 dollar and our AGI was was $ 2587, and 25000, and 375000
etc. we did not made much money. we lost money in real estate, and consulting business in this very difficult and confision economic times. 656-L there is consideration for economic disater, right, simply put, we did not made much money
and lost money in rental bsiness and consulting business, and stock market. then I do not have much tax to pay. I need your answer. on this issue.

Dear Mr Mod :
Thank you. I called IRS NEW York office, They told me that 50 percent accepted on 656-L 50% was not accepted. Your lawer told me. I should ask audit reconsideration.
The reason why i ask ouble of liability and offer in compromise is that, Iasked legal questio to tax court Judge, he did not answer. I asked whether IRS chief coucle had power to stop my amened retrun 1040X 2006,2007,and 2008. Other CPAS do not know whether he had that kind of power.I worked with examination office 6 months, the result was I did not owe year 2006,2007 and year 2008, I owe 1812 plus interest. According to My amended return, I did not owe any tax. my 1120S corproation consulting,research,
stock investing etc was not recognized contrary to IRS 1120S department approval.
After meeeting, IRS chief coucle told me I should fine 656-L( double of liability and offer in compromise). can I get third party representation ? and which course of action take in this juntion ? My email address is XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX my day time cell number is XXXXX work phone(NNN) NNN-NNNNI wrok from 9:00am-4:00PM M_F EST.

and CPA. and many IRS inside people such as 1120S department,examinations office
results. He overuled and He stopped My 1040X amended return year 2006,2007, and year 2008. Iasked the judge in US tax court , he did not anser my question whether
IRS lawyer had that kind of power. My business assoicate told me that I am victimized
It is not $1812 doolar plus interest. IRS lawyer changed the amount to be 15000 dollar plus interest, total amout about $ 19500 dollar. I talked with IRS philadelphia office.today. Mr. Glenn told me that 25% get acceptance for 656-L. He told me that
