Offer in Compromise

Settle your tax debt for less than you owe. Our tax attorneys in Los Angeles and San Diego specialize in Offers in Compromise (OIC) which allow you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount owed. The OIC program was instituted by the IRS for taxpayers unable to pay off their IRS debt due to financial hardship or due to taxes which are wrongfully owed.

Stop Wage Garnishments

Don’t let the government take your income. In order to satisfy an IRS tax debt, the IRS can take a portion of your wages or any other income until the outstanding balance is paid in full. Wage garnishment can amount to almost half of your gross monthly income.

IRS Payment Plans

Pay off debt on your schedule. An IRS Installment Agreement or IRS Partial Payment Plan is an alternative to an Offer in Compromise (OIC) and is for those taxpayers who do not qualify for an OIC due to their income being too high. Our tax attorneys in Los Angeles and San Diego can draw up a Partial Payment Installment Agreement (PPIA) that allows you to make monthly payments if you are not financially able to pay your tax debt immediately.

IRS Not Collectible Status

Stop the IRS from asking for money you don’t have. Once a taxpayer is placed on a “Currently Not Collectible” (CNC) status, the IRS will suspend its collection activities and must immediately stop any wage garnishment or bank levies. Being placed on a CNC status means that the IRS has determined that you cannot afford to pay off your tax debt at the present time.

Dawn Delia, Esq

Managing Tax Attorney San Diego Office


  • Q: Will I qualify for a settlement (Offer in Compromise) of my IRS tax debt?

    A: It depends. The IRS has recently offered more flexible terms to its Offer in Compromise (OIC) program. This flexibility was enacted to help resolve the tax problems of financially distressed taxpayers.

  • Q: Can you release my wage garnishment?

    A: Yes. There are actually many options to take care of an IRS tax debt. The best thing your tax attorney can do is take advantage of these options and avoid a wage garnishment in the first place. If it is unavoidable, wage garnishments may be released in several ways.

  • Q: The IRS took everything out of my bank account. Can you release my bank levy and stop them from doing it again?

    A: Yes. After you have received a “Final Notice of Intent to Levy,” the IRS will contact your bank informing them that they are required to freeze your account. Once frozen, the IRS must wait 21 days before they can levy your bank account funds.

  • Q: How much do you charge? Can I pay in installments?

    A: We work with you to find a reasonable fee based on the complexity of your case. Payment plans are always available. We’ll go over more during our initial free consultation.


A Few Words From Our Clients…

“I came to Delia Law when I realized I would not be able to pay off my tax debt of $36,000 (plus all the penalties and interest) AND support my three kids alone… Dawn was able to settle my debt for $2,200.”

Michael J.

"Dawn Delia is genuine, honest, and just plain hardworking. She responded timely to my every call and worked fast whenever a problem came up. She resolved my IRS tax debt of over $500,000 with an offer in compromise and gave me faith that there are people out there that want to help others."

Michael S.

“I was referred to Dawn Delia from my CPA who could not handle my difficult tax problems. She was so easy to talk to and did not make me feel bad, which was really important to me and she just put me at ease.”

Rosanna G.

I was referred to Dawn from my lawyer so I could resolve a few IRS issues from a few businesses I owned in the past. To sum up the entire experience I've been having with her: she is truly God-sent. I initially had a phone interview with her and could see right away that she was the right person to handle the job.

Kim K.

Without Dawn Delia's tenacious and intelligent legal abilities I would have ended up paying the IRS over $100,000 in back taxes and penalties. Most awesome work and results I ever got from an attorney! I can now sleep much better at night.”

Jacob F.

Attorney Dawn Delia was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, compassionate, and patient when I was lagging behind my deadlines in getting her the requested information... She can't be compared to the large law firms who will take your money and rarely let you talk to an attorney but limit your access to customer service reps and paralegals.
