Low Income Tax Clinic Services

We provide free advice and, in some cases, representation for taxpayers who have problems with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). 

Is the IRS asking you to provide certain items (marital status, income, dependents, expenses, etc.) on your tax return?

Do you disagree with the amount of tax that the IRS is saying you will owe?

Do you already owe taxes that you cannot afford to pay?

KYCC provides free consultation and assistance in the following areas

  • Setting up a Payment Plan
  • Audits and Examinations
  • Wage and ID Verifications
  • Shared Responsibility Reconciliations
  • U.S. Tax Court Litigation
  • Innocent Spouse Relief
  • Offer and Compromise

Eligibility Requirements:

To qualify, applicants generally must have an IRS controversy, live in the County of Los Angeles, and have income that does not exceed 250% of the annual Federal Poverty Guidelines (income eligibility guidelines).

KYCC’s LITC works with volunteer attourneys to assist with cases. Often, there is more demand than availability. You may be assigned to a waiting list until a Pro Bono volunteer can take on a case. To start, visit the Schedule an Intake webpage.

KYCC’s LITC receives funding from the IRS. The clinic, its employees, and volunteers are not affiliated with the IRS.

KYCC’s LITC does not prepare tax returns. For more information on free income tax preparation, click here.
