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
- 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.
