WASHINGTON (5/3/12)--Applications for the 2013 round of the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) grant process will be accepted until June 15, the IRS said Wednesday.
LITCs represent low-income taxpayers in federal tax disputes the IRS for free or for a small charge. The LITCs also may provide tax education and outreach for taxpayers who speak English as a second language.
The IRS noted its LITC program awards matching grants of up to $100,000 per year to qualifying organizations to develop, expand, or maintain low income taxpayer clinics. Around $10 million in grants were issued to 165 organizations, including some credit unions, last year.
LITC applications from all locations will be accepted, but the IRS said it is particularly interested in receiving applications from organizations in underserved areas of the country.
