Information for Clients

I want you to understand that you did much more than save me money, you made it possible for me to spend my "golden years" decently and not as a pauper. . .  There is no way I can ever thank you adequately.  
- Client, Federal Tax Clinic

The clinic represents taxpayers who have ongoing disputes with the Internal Revenue Service. Under current income guidelines, taxpayers who earn from $27,075 per year (for single taxpayers) to $64,475 per year (for a family of five) can receive representation from the clinic.  No fee is charged for our services.

The clinic handles tax cases at all stages of the dispute, from clients under audit by the IRS, to cases before the United States Tax Court, and collection cases. Typical cases involve:

  • Small business audits
  • Innocent spouse rules
  • Employee-independent contractor
  • Earned income tax credit and dependency exemptions
  • Collection matters, including offers in compromise

We do not prepare tax returns or offer tax preparation advice.

Clients may be referred to the clinic or they may contact us directly at (206) 685-6805. The clinic is staffed by student-attorneys, a staff attorney and the director, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Extended hours and weekend appointments are also available.
