SBA Offer in Compromise and Other Legal Services

The Small Business Administration (SBA) is an arm of the federal government best know for loan programs. Their loans are obtained more easily when you have less than perfect credit. They are also repayable over a longer period of time than most standard business loans from a bank or credit union. However, to counterbalance these advantages, the federal government can be very strict about repayment plans. As a result, SBA loan default and even SBA loan foreclosure can be commonplace. Studies have shown that, of all of the SBA franchise loans offered between 2003 and 2012 (representing over $1.5 billion), 28% defaulted.

When you receive a SBA demand letter, you may look for an attorney who represents business owners in SBA cases. The following is a list of benefits these attorneys can offer as you seek out appropriate representation.

  • An attorney will first work to protect you and your personal assets. Then, they will focus on appealing the SBA's decision of default or foreclosure. That way, they will work to give you one of two outcomes: the time to start paying again or a way to close the business while remaining financially intact.
  • Your lawyer will employ a series of tactics to stall foreclosure or allow you to start catching up on payments. These include requesting deferment, applying for administrative representation with the SBA, litigation, negotiation, a case brought before the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals, and an SBA Offer in Compromise (SBA OIC).
  • This last option involves coming to an agreement with the SBA in which partial or reduced payments are made in order to settle the debt. It involves a complicated application process that an SBA case attorney will understand. During the process, your attorney may be able to forestall a SBA loan foreclosure on your business property or home.
  • The goal is to enable you to pay off part or all of your loan. An attorney may encourage you to apply for the SBA's Tax Offset Program, in which your yearly tax refunds are used as repayment. This eliminates the hassle and stress of making monthly payments.
  • If you are not having SBA problems, many attorneys can help you get your affairs in order so you can apply for an SBA loan.

Many firms that are employed for SBA cases are willing to work anywhere in the country. Keep this in mind when selecting the appropriate legal counsel.

Clients personally guaranteed SBA 7(a) loan balance of over $300,000.  Clients also pledged their home as additional collateral.  SBA OIC accepted for $87,000 with full release of lien against home.



Client personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan to help with a relative’s new business venture.  After the business failed, Treasury was able to secure a recurring Treasury Offset Program (TOP) levy against our client’s monthly Social Security Benefits based on the claim that he owed over $1.2 million dollars.  We initially submitted a Cross-Servicing Dispute, but then, prepared and filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (SBA OHA).  As a result of our efforts, we were able to convince the SBA to not only terminate the claimed debt of $1.2 million dollars against our client (without him having to file bankruptcy), but also refund the past recurring amounts that were offset from his Social Security Benefits in connection with the TOP levy.



Clients personally guaranteed SBA 504 loan balance of $750,000.  Clients also pledged the business’s equipment/inventory and their home as additional collateral.  Clients had agreed to a voluntary sale of their home to pay down the balance.  We intervened and rejected the proposed home sale.  Instead, we negotiated an acceptable term repayment agreement and release of lien on the home.
