135 places for low-income taxpayers to turn for help

Since 1999, the Internal Revenue Service has awarded federal grants to groups that sponsor clinics to help low-income individuals resolve tax disputes. Volunteers at the clinics generally provide free help for taxpayers trying to resolve disputes with the IRS. There may be a nominal charge for associated costs, such as document copying or court filing fees.

In 2004, federal funds were awared to 135 organizations to help run taxpayer clinics in 49 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. That's three fewer clinics than last year, but the program expanded to another state this year. Only Wyoming has no IRS-funded tax clinics.

The clinics are listed below by state, sponsoring organization and city. Many of these same organizations are expected to be among those that can help eligible filers with their taxes this year. The IRS is expected to announce the latest list by mid-March. In the meantime, for specific clinic locations or other help, contact the local IRS office nearest you.
