From the Legal Aid Society of New York:
The Legal Aid Society is interested in sponsoring an applicant for the ABA Section of Taxation Public Service Fellowship. The fellow would work with our Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) to advocate for low-income taxpayers before the IRS and New York State Department of Taxation and Finance with respect to income tax issues, including but not limited to issues arising in connection with the Affordable Care Act health insurance premium and credit, other refundable credits, collection alternatives, misclassified employees, innocent spouse relief, and identity theft. Individuals who will receive their J.D. or L.L.M. in 2013, or recent graduates with experience in tax law are encouraged to apply. The Legal Aid Society’s LITC has provided assistance to thousands of low-income taxpayers since 2001 and works with other advocates in The Legal Aid Society and throughout New York City to address tax issues which affect low income New Yorkers. ...
