Low Income Taxpayer Clinic

The Center of Concern’s IRS Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) can represent you before the IRS or in court on audits, appeals, tax collection matters, and other tax disputes. Generally, the LITC does not prepare tax returns. Legal services are provided for free to qualified residents with IRS disputes in amounts less than $50,000. Annual client incomes cannot exceed 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines as outlined online: taxpayeradvocate.irs.gov/about- us/low-income-taxpayer-clinics-litc

LITCs are independent from the IRS and the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS). Clinics participating in the LITC Program ensure the fairness and integrity of the tax system for taxpayers who are low-income or speak English as a second Language (ESL). LITCs provide representation, education, and advocacy to residents by:

• Providing pro bono representation on their behalf in tax disputes with the IRS;
• Educating them about their rights and responsibilities as taxpayers; and
• Identifying and advocating for issues that impact these taxpayers.
