Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC)

Embracing our mission to provide high quality civil legal services to low-income individuals, families, community groups, and nonprofit organizations in New York City, Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A (Brooklyn A) has opened the Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) to assist income-eligible taxpayers with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issues. The goal of Brooklyn A’s LITC is to represent and educate low-income taxpayers who cannot afford legal services and to advocate on their behalf. We also provide workshops to community groups who are low-income and/or speak English as a second language to inform them of their rights and responsibilities as taxpayers. Our LITC is managed by a senior staff attorney who has 10 years of experience practicing law in New York and New Jersey.
