MidPenn Legal Services Low-Income Tax-Payer Clinic

MidPenn Legal Services was awarded a grant from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to operate a Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) in our region. This service is in addition to what MidPenn already provides to low-income families including: custody, landlord-tenant, mortgage foreclosure, domestic violence, obtaining health care, debtor defense, public benefits such as Social Security Disability and food stamps, unemployment compensation, and elderly law.

Unlike Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites which help low-income families with their income tax filings, the MidPenn LITC provides free representation for low-income tax payers who need legal assistance to resolve disputes with the IRS such as:

        Helping clients in disputes with IRS audits, appeals and collection matters

        Preventing IRS collection in cases of financial hardship

        Helping taxpayers enter into reasonable payment agreements

        Tax problems arising from identity theft

        Innocent spouse cases

Services also include outreach and education to taxpayers who speak English as a second language. 

Please call 844-675-7829 (1-844-MPLS-TAX)

The Clinic does not provide tax return preparation.
