Low-Income Taxpayer Project Shines in National Review
Sandra Ramirez, an advocacy analyst from the national Taxpayer Advocate Service Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic Program Office, traveled to New Hampshire in June to conduct an annual site visit of the NH Bar Association Pro Bono Referral Program Low-Income Taxpayer Project (LITP).
Through the clinic, both staff and volunteer attorneys provide representation to low-income New Hampshire residents facing controversies with the IRS.
