Washington (May 2, 2003) -- The 2004 Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) grant application process is now open, according to National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson. Organizations providing low cost or no cost representation to people involved in tax disputes can apply for grants worth up to $100,000 for the 2004 grant cycle.

Olson sees the funding of the low income taxpayer clinics and the provision of free or nominal fee tax representation as a significant step toward a more equitable tax system. The IRS matching grant program encourages the creation and growth of low income taxpayer clinics across the nation. These clinics provide an important resource to taxpayers who may not be able to afford a tax professional.
