Below is some information that will help you start resolving your state tax liabilities.  If you have questions and would like to talk to a licensed Tax Resolution Specialist please do not hesitate to call us at 866-487-5624.


Nevada Department of Taxation (NV-DOT) is pretty straight forward when it comes to setting up a Payment Plan to satisfy a back-tax liability.  

If your tax liability is below $50,000 you can set up a payment plan up to 36 months without submitting any financial documentation.  You will need to fill out a Taxpayer Request for Payment Plan form and personally guarantee the debt.  

If your tax liability is more than $50,000 OR you cannot pay your tax debt within 36 months, you will be required to complete a financial statement form to support your financial position, in addition to a personal guarantee.

Offer in Compromise

The Nevada Department of Taxation does have an Offer in Compromise (OIC) program available to those that qualify.  The OIC is an opportunity to settle your tax debt for a lesser amount.  It has very similar qualifying requirements as the IRS Offer in Compromise Program.  

Candidates for the Offer in Compromise need to be in current tax compliance, show little or no equity in assets and have little or no ability to pay monthly.  If you meet these initial requirements, the Offer may be a good fit.

Penalty Relief

Nevada Department of Taxation may be willing to grant penalty relief in certain cases.  Be prepared to prove that you experienced unavoidable hardships which contributed to the tax accrual and that you did not willingly neglect your tax obligations.  

Here’s the catch, you have to pay your back-tax balance in full before the state will consider your penalty abatement request.  Submit your request using the Request for Waiver of Penalty and/or Interest form.


The Nevada Department of Taxation has some flexibility when it comes to back tax liabilities.  Each case varies based on factors such as your compliance history, type of tax owed and total amount past due.  Here are some case examples in your state negotiated by M&M.
