"Hiring this firm will save you more than they cost you." — RR
Often it is best for taxpayers to negotiate a settlement of their matters with the IRS rather than to fight on to the United States Tax Court, to the United States District Court or to the United States Court of Claims. However, often the best chance of getting a good settlement requires being prepared to go to trial. Givner & Kaye helps clients strategize the best road to success.
Tax Lawyers Unafraid to Fight Back
A common situation for our clients is that the IRS has saddled them with debt of such size that it is very difficult to liquidate assets and pay. Clients are looking for some way to significantly reduce the amount owed, or to stretch out payments so they are not selling into a bad or impossible market.

Los Angeles IRS Settlements Attorney
There are several programs and filings we have taken clients through:
- Offer in Compromise. This is a difficult mechanism for settlement because you must persuade the IRS they are not getting less through negotiation than through forced collection.
- Partial Payment Installment Agreement. It is possible to negotiate a less onerous payment schedule.
- Penalty Abatement. The IRS provides this useful mechanism for reducing the amount of penalties you pay.
