Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Grant Recipients Announced

IR-2015-61, March 27, 2015

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service awarded approximately $10.25 million in matching grants to Low Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITCs) for the 2015 grant year (Jan. 1, 2015, through Dec. 31, 2015).

LITCs are organizations that represent low income taxpayers in federal tax disputes with the IRS for free or for a nominal fee, organizations that provide tax education and outreach to taxpayers who speak English as a second language, or organizations that do both.

Through the LITC program, the IRS awards matching grants of up to $100,000 per year to qualifying organizations. The LITC program is a federal program administered by the Taxpayer Advocate Service, led by National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson. However, LITCs, their employees and volunteers operate independently of the federal government.

More information about LITCs and the work they do to represent, educate and advocate on behalf of low income taxpayers is available in IRS Publication 5066, LITC Program Report. IRS Publication 4134, Low Income Taxpayer Clinic List, provides information about LITCs by geographic area, including contact information and details about the languages each LITC can accommodate in addition to English. Publication 5066 and Publication 4134 are available at IRS.gov. 

A list of the 132 organizations awarded LITC grants for the 2015 grant year is also available on IRS.gov.
