WASHINGTON –– The Internal Revenue Service has awarded nearly $10 million in matching grants to Low Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITCs) for the 2011 grant cycle (Jan. 1, 2011, through Dec. 31, 2011).

LITCs are organizations that represent low-income taxpayers in federal tax controversies with the IRS for free or for a nominal charge and/or provide tax education and outreach for taxpayers who speak English as a second language.

Through the LITC program, the IRS awards matching grants of up to $100,000 a year to qualifying organizations. For the 2011 grant cycle, the IRS awarded LITC grants to 165 organizations.

The LITC grant program is a federal program administered by the Taxpayer Advocate Service, led by National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson. LITCs and their employees and volunteers, however operate independently of the federal government.
