Representing Low-Income Taxpayers When the IRS and/or DOR Comes to Collect: Part Two

Monday, November 16, 2015 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

This seminar is the second in a series of three trainings designed to build a panel of pro bono tax attorneys for the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic at Greater Boston Legal Services and the Legal Services Center at Harvard Law School.  Tax collection issues represent the biggest challenge for low income taxpayers.  A high percentage of taxpayers wait until the collection phase to engage with the IRS and only after the IRS has levied assets or income. 

Through the use of case examples, attendees will learn the IRS collection timeline, right to due process, and how to best remove levies or liens. Attendees will also learn to identify alternative options to full collection including payment agreements, Offers in Compromise; Currently Not Collectible status; and/or bankruptcy. 

Click here to sign up for Part Three of the training series. If you missed part one, please contact Katie D’Angelo at kdangelo@bostonbar.org for more information.

In return for attending the free training, attendees are expected to take at least one pro bono case. Volunteers will have access to the expert resources and support of the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic throughout their case. 

Certificates of attendance will be available.

Law students are welcome to attend but are not eligible to receive referrals of pro bono cases.
