Tax Clinic

The Tax Clinic is funded by the Internal Revenue Service through its Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic Program (LITC).  The LITC serves taxpayers involved in disputes with the IRS who cannot otherwise afford legal services.  Tax Clinic students gain many of the same representational skills involved in the Litigation Clinic while focusing more on negotiation skills as well as learning the specific procedures and laws of the Tax Code.  The Tax Clinic also provides education and outreach services to communities where English is a second language to inform them of their rights and responsibilities as taxpayers.
