WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service's Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) program office announced today that its 2022 Publication 4134, Low Income Taxpayer Clinic List PDF, is now available.

IRS Publication 4134, Low Income Taxpayer Clinic List, provides information about LITCs by geographic area, including contact information and details about the languages, in addition to English, in which each LITC offers services.

How an LITC can help

A Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) represents individuals whose incomes are generally at or below 250% of the federal poverty guideline, and who are seeking to resolve tax problems with the IRS, such as audits, appeals and tax collection disputes. LITCs can represent taxpayers in court as well as before the IRS. They also can provide information about taxpayer rights and responsibilities in different languages for English as a Second Language (ESL) taxpayers.

LITC program information

The LITC program is a federal grant program administered by the Taxpayer Advocate Service, led by National Taxpayer Advocate Erin M. Collins. Through the LITC program, the IRS awards matching grants of up to $100,000 per year to qualifying organizations. LITCs provide services for free or a small fee. They receive IRS grants but work independently to assist and advocate for taxpayers.
