The Department of the Treasury announces funding for Low-Income Taxpayers Clinics. The mission of the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) Program is to ensure the fairness and integrity of the federal tax system for all taxpayers, particularly those like low-income individuals and taxpayers for whom English is a second language (ESL).

LITC grantees must:

•Represent individual low-income taxpayers in controversies with the IRS;

•Educate low-income and ESL taxpayers about their rights and responsibilities as U.S. taxpayers;

 

•Identify and advocate for issues that impact low-income taxpayers;

•Provide dollar-for-dollar matching funds;

•Offer LITC services for free or for no more than a nominal fee.

One of the ten fundamental rights taxpayers have when dealing with the IRS is the right to retain representation, meaning taxpayers have the right to retain an authorized representative of their choice to represent them in their interactions with the IRS. A taxpayer who cannot afford to hire a representative has the right to be informed about their potential eligibility for assistance from an LITC. The LITC Program protects taxpayers’ rights by providing access to representation for low- income taxpayers so that achieving a correct outcome in an IRS dispute does not depend on the taxpayer’s ability to pay for representation. Helping a taxpayer avoid a controversy through education and outreach is another essential function of LITCs. LITCs are required to educate taxpayers on their rights and responsibilities to help them understand the U.S. tax system, exercise their rights as taxpayers, and comply with their tax responsibilities. Learning is enhanced by providing an opportunity for taxpayers to ask questions and interact with clinic staff. Outreach activities may involve direct communication with taxpayers or be accomplished indirectly through other organizations or groups that assist low-income and ESL taxpayers. At least 90 percent of the taxpayers the LITC represents must be low-income, meaning a taxpayer’s income does not exceed 250 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Grant Amount: Grants of up to $100,000 are available.

Eligibility: To receive a grant, a clinic must represent low-income taxpayers in controversies with the IRS and operate a program to educate ESL taxpayers about their rights and responsibilities under the IRC. Examples of an eligible applicant include a clinical program at an accredited law, business, or accounting school in which students assist in service delivery; and an organization described in IRC 501(c) and exempt from tax under IRC 501(a) in which employees and volunteers in service delivery represent low-income taxpayers in controversies with the IRS. Applicants must provide matching funds on a dollar-for-dollar basis for all federal funds awarded by the IRS.

Due Date: June 27, 2018
