Low Income Tax Clinic provides IRS tax solutions
Legal Aid’s Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) helps people who have low income or speak English as a second language with IRS tax disputes. 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.
People can turn to the LITC for information and advocacy on tax issues. These include reducing or eliminating your tax debt, stopping IRS collection action, providing representation in US Tax Court, advocating for an audit reconsideration, addressing identity theft problems, or helping get some of your refund back that was taken for a spouse’s debt, among others.
We partner with other legal aid organizations and government and community partners across the state of Minnesota, including the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota, Minnesota Justice Foundation, University of Minnesota Law Clinics, Volunteer Lawyers Network, Taxpayer Advocate Service, Minnesota Department of Revenue, Prepare + Prosper and other VITA and TCE tax preparation service providers, Brian Coyle Center, and the City of Minneapolis.
