remains pending until the IRS accepts, rejects, returns, or I withdraw my offer. An offer is also considered pending
for 30 days after any rejection of my offer by the IRS, and during the time that any rejection of my offer is being
considered by the Appeals Office. An offer will be considered withdrawn when the IRS receives my written
notification of withdrawal by personal delivery or certified mail or when I inform the IRS of my withdrawal by other
means and the IRS acknowledges in writing my intent to withdraw the offer.

submitted for joint tax debt, and one of us does not comply with future obligations, only the non-compliant
taxpayer will be in default of this agreement. An accepted offer will not be defaulted solely due to the assessment
of an individual shared responsibility payment. I also understand that during the five year period I cannot request
an installment agreement for unpaid taxes incurred before or after the accepted offer.
k) I agree that I will remain liable for the full amount of the tax liability, accrued penalties and interest, until I have
met all of the terms and conditions of this offer. Penalty and interest will continue to accrue until all payment terms
of the offer have been met. If I file for bankruptcy before the terms and conditions of the offer are met, I agree that
the IRS may file a claim for the full amount of the tax liability, accrued penalties and interest, and that any claim
the IRS files in the bankruptcy proceeding will be a tax claim.

(statutory period of assessment). I agree that the date by which the IRS must assess my tax debt will now be the
date by which my debt must currently be assessed plus the period of time my offer is pending plus one additional
year if the IRS rejects, returns, or terminates my offer or I withdraw it. (Paragraph (h) of this section defines
pending and withdrawal.) I understand that I have the right not to waive the statutory period of assessment or to
limit the waiver to a certain length or certain periods or issues. I understand, however, that the IRS may not
consider my offer if I refuse to waive the statutory period of assessment or if I provide only a limited waiver. I also
understand that the statutory period for collecting my tax debt will be suspended during the time my offer is
pending with the IRS, for 30 days after any rejection of my offer by the IRS, and during the time that any rejection
of my offer is being considered by the Appeals Office.
