The National Taxpayer Advocate compared Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) organization to superheroes in a recent blog post:
Within that blog post, she cites the IRS has the application period open through April 16 for organizations to apply in order to establish a new tax clinic. There is a need for expansion regarding expansion of coverage in Arizona, Florida, Idaho, and Pennsylvania. Also, there are no clinics currently in Nevada, North Dakota, West Virginia, Wyoming, and Puerto Rico.
I talk through some of the LITC requirements, but they are all listed in IRS Publication 3319. After that, I discuss the grant report. These are various IRS Form 13424 forms, such as 13424-A, 13424-B, etc.
I encourage you to establish a clinic if you have the resources. Otherwise, please consider making a donation or volunteering with your local clinic!
