Center for Taxpayer Rights

A Project of the Center for Taxpayer Rights

The LITC Support Center’s mission is to increase awareness of and access to taxpayer rights by strengthening and supporting tax clinics that provide pro bono representation to low-income and other underrepresented taxpayers.

The Support Center provides technical support and training for clinicians and clinic volunteers; connects volunteers with clinics through LITC Connect; and advocates for systemic change through workshops, high-impact litigation, amicus briefs, research, and other projects.

You can learn more about the work of the LITC Support Center here.

Join LITC Connect

Please join the network of LITCs and volunteer attorneys, CPAs, and Enrolled Agents and help ensure low income taxpayers have access to the same taxpayer protections more affluent taxpayers enjoy.

Become a volunteer/ Join LITC Connect

Interested in volunteering to assist LITCs or representing low income taxpayers but you don’t know where to start or need training on specific issues?  LITC Connect connects attorneys, CPAs, and Enrolled Agents with LITCs who need volunteers.  

As a member of LITC Connect, volunteers gain access to the Center’s training video library and receive advance notifications of workshops and training opportunities.  The Center also maintains professional liability coverage for its volunteers.

And remember, your volunteer time can count as an in-kind contribution, which may bring in dollar-for-dollar matching funding to an under-resourced LITC under the IRS LITC Grant Program.

Join as a clinic/ Join LITC Connect

LITC Connect helps new and existing clinics obtain volunteers for needs as diverse as technical advice, pro bono representation, or training.  Through LITC Connect, clinics can also access the Center’s training video library and other resources dedicated to representation of low income taxpayers and education about their rights as taxpayers. 

Operating like a “dating app” for volunteers and LITCs, LITC Connect lets volunteers create a profile and describe their interests in volunteering as well as their training needs.  LITC Connect then matches the volunteers to LITCs that need assistance.
