Legal Aid attorneys of our Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) help Minnesotans statewide, focusing on IRS tax disputes and tax education.

While we don’t prepare taxes, we can help with issues involving IRS action or debt. Most commonly, clients come to us after they have received a notice from the IRS alerting them to some kind of tax liability, or when the IRS starts taking collection action such as garnishing wages or placing a lien on a property.

Tax issues we help with include:

  • Reducing or eliminating tax debt
  • Stopping IRS collection action
  • Providing representation in US Tax Court for people with low incomes or who speak English as a second language
  • Advocating for an audit reconsideration
  • Addressing identity theft problems
  • Worker misclassification
  • Helping recover a portion of your refund taken for a spouse’s debt
