2007 Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) Grant Application Package and Guidelines
Who is Qualified for the LITC Grant?
To qualify for the LITC Grant you must be an Accredited Law School, Business School, and/or 501(c) non profit organization that provides pro bono representation to low income taxpayers in federal tax disputes or education and outreach to taxpayers for whom English is a second language.
How do I apply for an LITC Grant?
Publication 3319, outlines the guidelines and requirements of a qualifying participant in the IRS LITC Program and provides instructions on how to apply for a LITC grant award. You may transmit your application to our office electronically or by email. Instructions for submitting applications are included in Publication 3319. The costs of preparing and submitting a grant application are the sole responsibility of the applicant. The 2007 application package for the Low Income Taxpayer clinics grant program will be available on May 08, 2006.
Cost Principles: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) amended the cost principles in OMB Circulars A-21, A-87 and A-122. These changes are intended to further the objectives of Public Law 106-107, the Federal Financial Assistance Management Improvement Act. The ACT simplifies the cost principles, making the description of similar cost items consistent across circulars.
Qualifying organizations can obtain LITC CFDA#21.008 Funding Opportunity Information via the Health and Human Services (HHS) website at www.grants.gov. However, in order to "submit an electronic" Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Grant Application please go to " IRS Electronic-Grants".
The IRS must receive all LITC grants applications, no later than July 07, 2006, 4:00 p.m. EDT.
