Thanks for asking for me. I'm PDtax.
You have three bases for a reduced settlement with IRS:
There is a doubt as to the liability,
There is a doubt as to collectibility, or
A discount would be appropriate if if would allow for effective tax administration.
If the tax is due, and you have the means to pay, it'sd not likely that you will get a deal. The deals only come when there is (1) a risk that the tax due is incorrect, and you are willing to dispute it or (2) you don't have the means to pay. IRS will settle to get the most they can.
Effective tax administration likely does not apply in your case.
