The University of Baltimore School of Law, with the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS) and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, will offer a free program on Saturday, March 3 to help Marylanders who make less than $14.50 an hour and owe back taxes.
The “Offer in Compromise” program allows taxpayers to offer the Internal Revenue Service an amount they can afford to pay in exchange for the IRS’s dropping the amount owed in back taxes. The amount actually paid is decided based on each individual’s financial situation, as well as on other circumstances, according to an article in The Daily Record.
John Snyder III, the director of UB’s Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic, and the director of the University of Maryland’s tax clinic will give a joint presentation to the taxpayers before student-attorneys from the two law schools meet with taxpayers individually.
Attendees must register in advance and have an annual household income of less than $54,000.
Saturday, March 3, 2018
10 a.m. to 12 noon

201 N. Charles St., Suite 1400
