Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic

Bay Area Legal Services’ Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) receives funding from the Internal Revenue Ser­vice (IRS) to provide services when our clients have a dispute with the IRS.  Disputes handled by the LITC include:

  • Representation in court
  • Audits
  • Requests to produce documents
  • Identity theft
  • Innocent spouse matters
  • Levies on income
  • Noncustodial parent matters
  • Responding to notices

We also provide outreach, education, and representation to taxpayers with limited English-language skills, including Spanish and Creole-language populations in our service area.  Although we receive funding from the IRS for our clinic, our staff are completely inde­pendent of the federal gov­ernment.

If you are a taxpayer who cannot afford professional tax assistance and need help understanding your taxpayer rights and responsibilities, you may qualify for free help.
