Description of Service
The Taxpayer Clinic offers law students opportunities to gain practical lawyering skills while representing low-income taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Students are supervised by three experienced tax law attorneys who also are Pitt adjunct faculty members. The clinic is funded by the IRS’s Low Income Taxpayer Clinic grant program (LITC), though the clinic is independent of the IRS. Clients are individuals who have disputes with the IRS concerning their federal taxes; however, the clinic does not prepare tax returns.
The clinic gives free legal help to persons, based upon their level of income, who have federal income tax problems or need federal income tax advice. Dealing with the clinic will not affect taxpayers’ rights before the IRS.
The clinic provides free advice and assistance for:
•Income tax returns being examined by the IRS;
•IRS tax-collection problems;
•Tax cases pending before the United States Tax Court
•The client’s income;
•The issues involved in his or her case;
•The availabilities of clinic students.
Each qualified client will be phoned by a student from the clinic, to arrange a meeting to discuss the client’s legal needs. All conversations with clients are confidential.
