Below are some recent success stories from the Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic.

Student Attorney Leslie Valentin '14 worked with an elderly, retired client to have the client’s outstanding tax liability with DC Office of Tax and Revenue resolved. The client’s outstanding liability was $32,748. Leslie was able to negotiate with the DC OTR’s collection unit to completely write off the client’s tax liability.

Student Attorney Carol Chadsey '14 helped a clinic client reduce her tax liability by 57%. The client’s liability was placed into Currently Not Collectible status, which means the IRS will not levy her property. The liability will be paid by offsetting the client’s tax refund for the next two years. This means the client will not have to make any out of pocket payments to pay her tax liability.

Student Attorney Chris Allen '14 helped a client substantiate her filing status, dependency exemptions, and claimed Earned Income Credit. The client is a grandmother, and all three of her grandchildren live with her. She has adopted one of them and has sole custody of the other two. The IRS determined that she owed an additional $7000 of tax. After Chris submitted an amended tax return with the necessary substantiation, the IRS agreed to the changes. The client will now receive a refund of $2009.
