About Low Income Taxpayer Clinics

The Low Income Taxpayer Clinic program provides partial funding and oversight for Low Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITCs). LITCs are independent from the IRS.

Some clinics serve individuals who need to resolve a tax problem and their income is below a certain level. These clinics provide professional representation before the IRS or in court on audits, appeals, tax collection disputes, and other issues for free or for a small fee.

Some clinics can provide information about taxpayer rights and responsibilities in many different languages for individuals who speak English as a second language.

For more information and to find a clinic near you see the LITC page on www.irs.gov/advocate or IRS Publication 4134Low Income Taxpayer Clinic List. This publication is also available by calling 1-800-829-3676 or at your local IRS office.
