I owe taxes from about 7 years ago. Awhile back they put me in non collectible status and since then they have been applying my refunds to the debt. A tax attorney has told me I can wait it out 10 years or try to do an offer in compromise. They haven't filed a federal tax lien, so I'm not sure I should do anything yet. What will the USCIS people say? I have sufficient income above the federal poverty guildelines and could use another sponsor if need be. I am just wondering since we are about ready to send this in, if they will out right deny us. I know a payment plan is preferred, but if I do something now, they will probably go ahead and file the lien, so it is almost a case of letting a sleeping dog alone for a bit.
