Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC)
Our year-round Low Income Taxpayer Clinic provides assistance and representation for low income taxpayers who have tax controversies with the Internal Revenue Service.
These controversies can include:
– payment agreements
– collection appeals
– offers in compromise
– IRS notices and other IRS-related tax issues
– I.D. theft
Income guidelines for assistance with IRS tax controversies through the LITC for 2016 are:
Size of Family Unit Income Ceiling (250% of Poverty Guidelines)
For each additional person above five, add $10,450.
ESL Education and Outreach Program
The LITC also offers an ESL Education and Outreach program that provides tax education and outreach for taxpayers who speak English as a second language (ESL). There are no financial eligibility requirements for ESL outreach and educational presentations and consultations.
For more information or to request assistance through the LITC, call (313) 556-1920 or 866-673-0873 toll-free.
Please note: The clinic does not generally provide tax return preparation services: Tax return preparation is provided by our year-round neighborhood tax centers.
