The NH Bar Association’s Low-Income Taxpayer Project (LITP) needs volunteer tax attorneys to prepare amended returns and ITIN applications for several New Hampshire-based Jamaican farm workers and their spouses.
These workers are eligible to file returns with their spouses as resident aliens, but their original returns were prepared by their employment agency without these benefits. For some of the workers, the same employment agency advised them incorrectly to claim the earned income tax credit a few years ago, resulting in federal tax liabilities.
Volunteers and LITP staff will need to meet with the workers on a Sunday at their work place, before they go back to Jamaica next month. LITP will provide volunteers with guides, forms, templates, and general support.
