Vermont Legal Aid’s Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC):
- provides free or low-cost assistance to low income taxpayers who have a tax dispute with the IRS about an audit, tax debt, levy or lien
- offers education and outreach events and materials to help taxpayers understand their tax responsibilities and to get benefits (like the Earned Income Tax Credit) that they may qualify for
- speaks up for low-income taxpayers and suggests changes to rules that cause clients economic hardship
While the LITC gets funding from the IRS to provide these services, the LITC is not part of the IRS.
