providing low income taxpayers the ability to get the help they need at an affordable cost
The Tax Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that represents low-income taxpayers in their disputes (controversies) with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In determining eligibility, we evaluate each taxpayer's situation individually. Through generous donations from our donors, some taxpayers may be eligible for services at a significantly reduced fee. However, assistance is contingent upon available funding at the time of application. We are not tax advisers, however, in such ESL (English as Second Language) cases; The Tax Foundation educates the taxpayer about their federal tax rights and responsibilities.
We help taxpayers who do not already have representation in their case and who cannot afford to pay for high-cost legal representation or tax assistance. We will not handle cases with more than $50,000.00 in dispute. The Tax Foundation does not assist with tax preparation unless there is an underlying tax issue that requires tax preparation and filing.
