How Do I Qualify?
How Do I Get Help?

The Legal Aid Society’s LITC program provides legal representation to low income taxpayers who are involved in tax controversies with the Internal Revenue Service. We receive partial funding from the IRS by the LITC grant program but we are not associated with the federal government and are independent from the IRS. We can provide representation before the IRS including audits, tax collection disputes, court, and other issues for free. If an individual’s native language is not English, we can provide multilingual information about taxpayer rights and responsibilities. 

We provide services to low income taxpayers residing in Palm Beach County. We do not handle cases where the amount in controversy is greater than $50,000 per tax year. Clients must also meet certain financial eligibility criteria (cannot exceed 250% of the federal poverty level). Click HERE for the 2017 Federal Poverty Guidelines to see if you are eligible. We will evaluate each taxpayer's situation individually to determine eligibility

What We Do:

We provide the following services to eligible taxpayers:

  • Respond to letters from the IRS
  • Substantiate income tax credits and deductions
  • Assist with audits/examinations
  • Innocent spouse relief
  • Injured spouse claims
  • IRS levies and liens
  • Offer in Compromise
  • Currently not collectible status
  • Installment agreements
  • Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)
  • Tax Court representation

What We Don’t Do:
We do not prepare taxes or give tax advice when there is not already an amount in controversy with the IRS.
