Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Program Reports on Activities

IR-2014-21, March 5, 2014

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service’s Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) Program Office issued its second annual program report on how LITCs assist thousands of low income taxpayers nationwide with pro bono representation, education, and advocacy services.

The LITCs provide free or low-cost assistance to low income taxpayers who have a tax dispute with the IRS, such as an audit or collection matter, and conduct education and outreach to taxpayers who speak English as a second language (ESL).  LITCs also advocate for low income taxpayers and highlight the need to change administrative practices and procedures that cause their clients economic hardship. 

“The LITCs help taxpayers achieve favorable outcomes in cases, access benefits administered through the tax system, and resolve tax debts, levies, and liens.  During 2012, LITCs helped taxpayers secure more than $5.8 million in tax refunds and eliminate nearly $35.5 million in tax liabilities, penalties and interest,” said William P. Nelson, LITC Program Director.  The report provides an overview and history of the LITC Program, discusses the type of work the LITCs perform, and explains how their work helps ensure the fairness and integrity of the tax system. 

The LITC program has a three-prong mission to represent, educate, and advocate for taxpayers.  Included in the report are several stories that provide examples of how LITCs have helped taxpayers.  One taxpayer was facing a levy action that put her in danger of losing her home but the LITC was able to negotiate an offer in compromise to eliminate the debt and keep the taxpayer in her home.  LITCs employ staff but also rely on the contributions of volunteers.  In 2012, taxpayers benefited from over 59,000 volunteer hours provided by nearly 2,300 LITC volunteers.

The LITC program awards matching grants of up to $100,000 per year to qualifying organizations to develop, expand, or maintain a low income taxpayer clinic.  The grant program is administered by the Office of the Taxpayer Advocate at the IRS, led by the National Taxpayer Advocate.  Although LITCs receive partial funding from the IRS, LITCs, their employees and volunteers operate independently from the IRS.  LITCs are generally operated by:

  • clinical programs at accredited law, business, or accounting schools;
  • legal aid or legal services organizations; and
  • other tax exempt organizations that serve low income individuals and families.

The Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Program Report is available at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p5066.pdf.

The H And R Block

H and r block Publication 850 (EN/SP) - Introductory Material Table of Contents Introduction Introduction This glossary is developed by the Tax Forms and Publications Division of the Internal Revenue Service, in consultation with the Translation Commission of the North American Academy of the Spanish Language (Comisión de Traducciones de la Academia Norteamericana de la Lengua Española) and with the Graduate Program in Translation of the University of Puerto Rico (Programa Graduado en Traducción de la Universidad de Puerto Rico). H and r block Its purpose is to establish high standards for the quality of language usage, to promote uniformity in language usage, and to minimize the risk of misinterpretation of Spanish-language materials issued by the Service. H and r block To meet the needs of the largest segment of taxpayers whose primary language is Spanish, the Service has issued certain Spanish-language materials. H and r block Problems arise, however, because there is some variation in tax terminology used in Spanish-speaking countries. H and r block Also, invention and compromise are involved in selecting words and phrases to describe certain tax concepts that have no precise equivalent in the Spanish language or legal tradition. H and r block To help resolve these problems, a group of United States, Spanish, and Spanish-American academicians, professors, lawyers, accountants, translators, and tax law specialists developed this glossary. H and r block Their long and varied experience with the tax systems in their own, and other countries, gives assurance of reliability. H and r block The criteria used for words in this glossary are: consistency of usage with other governmental agencies, Spanish writing style for the tax forms and publications, and words relating to Accounting, Economics, Finance, Law, Technology and its related fields. H and r block Any issuance containing language consistent with this glossary should be reasonably satisfactory for purposes of general guidance regarding the rights and obligations of taxpayers. H and r block It is not intended, however, that any term in this glossary should be understood to change the meaning of any provisions of law, regulations, or any other authoritative precedent. H and r block A periodic review is made to determine whether any additions, deletions, or revisions are needed. H and r block Some of the terms listed are identified by the abbreviation “P. H and r block R. H and r block ” These terms are for use in tax forms and publications intended for circulation exclusively in Puerto Rico.
