We provide free legal services to low-income taxpayers who are in controversy with the Internal Revenue Service and state of Michigan relating to tax matters. Student attorneys from the MSU College of Law are supervised by licensed attorneys under Michigan Court Rule 8.120. The Tax Clinic handles all aspects of controversy with the IRS, including representing taxpayers in cases before the United States Tax Court and the United States District Court. If you have a federal tax problem, the Tax Clinic can also assist with a state of Michigan or city tax matter. Please note that the Tax Clinic does not offer tax return preparation services. See the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) for assistance with current and past year tax returns.
Do you need to find a tax clinic in a different state? See IRS Publication 4134, Low Income Taxpayer Clinic List, to locate a tax clinic in your area. IRS Publication 4134-(SP), Lista de Talleres para Contribuyentes de Bajos Ingresos(Spanish).
