Controversy Assistance

ABDC’s Low Income Taxpayer Clinic provides assistance to qualifying taxpayers in controversy with the IRS. Assistance is provided year-round, is free of charge to qualifying taxpayers, and may range from consultation to representation. A consultation includes brief advice given to a taxpayer on a specific issue which may be the result of a taxpayer receiving a notice from the IRS. Representation may include a qualified practitioner directly representing a qualifying taxpayer in a controversy with the IRS. A taxpayer’s qualification is based on current year finances and the amount in controversy. Visit Taxpayer Resources for information on eligibility. For the 2022 calendar year, the income ceilings for low income representation are shown below. Each clinic will decide if you meet the income guidelines and other criteria before it agrees to represent you. Income Ceiling (250% of Poverty Guidelines)
