Tax Assistance Provided
LITCs represent individuals whose income is below a certain level and need to resolve tax problems with the IRS, such as audits, appeals, and tax collection disputes. LITCs can represent taxpayers in Tax Court as well as with the IRS. In addition, LITCs can provide information about taxpayer rights and responsibilities in different languages for individuals who speak English as a second language. LITCs provide services for free or a small fee. LITCs receive IRS grants but work independently to assist and advocate for taxpayers.
Who is Eligible to Receive Assistance?
Generally, taxpayers whose incomes do not exceed 250% of the federal poverty guidelines may qualify for assistance. Contact the LITC nearest you to find out if you meet income and other eligibility requirements.
