Low Income Taxpayer Clinic

AppalReD's Low Income Taxpayer Clinic provides low-income taxpayers with expertise and advocacy in resolving tax matters.

Our experienced attorneys can help you with a number of issues, including:

  • Levy Releases
  • Innocent Spouse Relief
  • IRS Negotiations
  • Earned Income Tax Credit Appeals
  • Tax Lien Resolutions
  • Tax Court Litigation
  • Identity Theft

Do you have questions about these or other tax issues? Call our clinic directly at 1-800-477-1394 or email Clinic Director Scott Davies at scottd@ardfky.org.

Although the AppalReD Low Income Taxpayer Clinic receives funding from the IRS, the clinic, its employees, and volunteers are not affiliated with the IRS. A taxpayer's decision to use the tax clinic's services will not impair the taxpayer's rights before the IRS.

Our clinic personnel do not prepare tax returns, but they can refer you to locations that will prepare returns for free.
