UF Law Launches Tax Clinic with $100,000 Grant from IRS
Spurred by a $100,000 grant from the IRS’s Taxpayer Advocate Service, the University of Florida Levin College of Law will launch a new Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic in 2022. The law school will match the grant funding to develop the legal clinic and hire the clinic’s inaugural faculty director.
Once launched, the clinic’s director and other licensed attorneys will supervise law students providing legal support to indigent taxpayers involved in disputes with the IRS. Clinic students will also provide tax-related education and outreach to clients who speak English as a second language.
“UF Law has long been one of the very best law schools for the study of tax law, and this grant will enable us to expand our tax offerings,” said Laura Ann Rosenbury, Dean and Levin, Mabie & Levin Professor of Law. “We look forward to offering taxpayers this vital service while also providing our students with the opportunity to participate in tax controversy litigation.”
