Course Number: 6940 Credits: 3
The Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) provides representation to low-income taxpayers who have disputes with the IRS. Students in the LITC will directly represent clients in various types of controversy matters. Additionally, students will develop educational materials and presentations targeted at vulnerable populations within our community. Students will identify systemic issues in tax administration and propose solutions to those issues to help create a more equitable tax system for all. Through this work, students will learn essential lawyering skills, such as, client interviewing, file maintenance, persuasive drafting, and issue spotting.
