MSU Law Clinics Moves to New Building

The MSU College of Law Alvin L. Storrs Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic along with all other legal clinics will be moving to its new location at the MSU Law Building at 648 N. Shaw Lane on Michigan State University's campus.  We will be closed August 11 to August 21 while we move.  Clients may call us and leave a message, however, we may be delayed in returning your call by up to 24 hours. Please make a note of our new mailing address and new physical address. PLEASE DO NOT MAIL DOCUMENTS TO OUR PHYSICAL ADDRESS.


The MSU College of Law Alvin L. Storrs Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic is a free legal-aid clinic that provides legal services to low-income taxpayers who are in controversy with the Internal Revenue Service and educational services relating to tax matters to those for whom English is a second language. We will arrange to meet with clients at other times on an as-needed basis.  The Tax Clinic also provides important tax-related legal services to indigent Michigan taxpayers.

At the same time, the Tax Clinic offers an excellent clinical education program for MSU College of Law students, extending learning beyond the classroom for the benefit of the community. Under Michigan Court Rule 8.120, second- and third-year law students are permitted to represent Tax Clinic clients under the supervision of clinical faculty, all of whom are members of the State Bar of Michigan with experience in tax law.

The Tax Clinic handles all aspects of controversy with the IRS, including representing taxpayers in cases before the United States Tax Court, the United States District Court, and federal appeals courts.

Taxpayers should review their income tax withholding (Form W-4)

One problem we see at the Tax Clinic are clients who do not have enough money withheld from their paychecks to cover their taxes.  The IRS recently issued advice on how and why you should be careful when you fill out a new W-4 when you start a job and when you have life changes like getting married or having a baby.  Learn more about it.
