Legal Aid Society’s community outreach programs are helping Palm Beach County’s most vulnerable citizens gain access to their basic rights for food, safety, health care, education and other areas.
Low Income Taxpayer Clinic
This project provides free tax advice and legal representation to low income families and individuals in order to resolve controversies with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). We provide assistance or representation in audits, collections, appeals, tax litigation and other IRS functions. We also provide education to community providers and residents about a variety of tax issues including Identity Theft, IRS Examinations, Tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit or American Opportunity Credit, Innocent/Injured Spouse relied and the Tax Consequences to Foreclosure.

Non-Profit Legal Assistance
Offer in-house legal services to non-profit agencies serving children and families in Palm Beach County. There is an annual fee for this service.
Provide free legal assistance through private attorneys for eligible Legal Aid clients whose cases cannot be handled by our in-house staff due to conflicts of interest or because staff do not have expertise in those areas of law. Over 2,500 private attorneys in Palm Beach County participate in this program.
If you are in need of any of these services, please call 561-655-8944 or toll free at 1-800-403-9353.
Our services rely on support from the community. Please donate here.
