Kassel is a former IRS Revenue Officer and has spent the past 12 years representing clients before tax agencies.

In 2001, Kassel acquired the domain in a lease/purchase arrangement with Vatco, Inc. of New York, NY. Kassel said, “Vatco President William Gluck was extremely generous in his financial support to Firse Tax. However, we had a fundamental disagreement on the value of the domain. We were unable to pay the amounts required under our 2001 agreement and Gluck recently turned down a very generous offer to purchase the domain outright for $500,000.00. I was able to purchase e from First of Princeton Junction, NJ for $13,000.00.”

Kassel notes that after several years of very lax IRS enforcement, the pendulum has swung 180 degrees. “From 1997 through 2003, the IRS was very easy to deal with and they accepted the vast majority of the Offers in Compromise (“Offers”) we submitted for our clients.” Under Federal law, Offers can be accepted by the IRS for less than the total due based upon the taxpayer’s assets and ability to pay.

In recent months the IRS has made life much more difficult for delinquent taxpayers. The numbers of levies on wages and bank accounts and the number of Federal tax liens filed has dramatically increased. But, the IRS has also warned taxpayers to beware of promoters’ claims that tax debts can be settled for “pennies on the dollar” through the Offer in Compromise Program.
