This means that a taxpayer can submit an Offer in Compromise during the examination process, at appeals, after a case is in Tax Court, and in another other stage of the collection process. The earlier the better though, when you submit an Offer in Compromise collection activity is forced to cease until after the offer has been either accepted or rejected.
