New Tax Clinic helps low-income taxpayers

The new Tax Clinic, directed by John B. Snyder III, represents low-income taxpayers in federal tax disputes. Its cases involve administrative controversies before the Internal Revenue Service and litigation in federal courts. The clinic does not normally prepare tax returns and does not handle accounting or transactional tax matters.

Under the supervision of a faculty member, student-attorneys are responsible for all aspects of representing clients, including interviewing and counseling clients, developing case strategy, engaging in fact investigation and discovery, drafting documents, negotiating with adversaries, and conducting hearings and trials. Typical student work includes arguing innocent spouse applications, preparing audit reconsiderations, briefing and appearing in collection matters (including Collection Due Process hearings and offers in compromise), and handling cases in Tax Court, including appearing at Tax Court calendar calls.
