Low Income Taxpayer Clinic

Free need-based legal representation in Federal tax matters, specializing in client controversy with the IRS. 

Lewis & Clark Law School’s Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) gives students the opportunity to represent low income taxpayers in controversies with the Internal Revenue Service and Oregon Department of Revenue, including audits and appeals before that agency, trials, hearings before the U.S. Tax Court, and appeals to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Student participants work under the supervision of an experienced tax attorney who is a full-time member of the law school faculty. The LITC accepts for representation only those cases that maximize student opportunities to learn and develop practical lawyering skills.

The LITC works together with the Small Business Legal Clinic, in downtown Portland.
