IRS Announces Low Income Taxpayer Clinics Grant Recipients

Earlier today Nina E. Olson, National Taxpayer Advocate, announced that the Internal Revenue Service will be awarding nearly $8 million in matching grants to Low Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITCs) this year. The IRS will be awarding LITC grants to 154 organizations from 49 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam.
