The Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) has provided grants to three Low Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITC) so they can expand their state-specific services this year. The clinics do not provide current year tax preparation services, but may be able to help qualifying taxpayers with collection matters, audits, appeals or responses to DOR notices. If any taxpayers need help with Massachusetts DOR issues (not IRS issues), you can refer them to one of these clinics. The three clinics in Massachusetts are:
- Boston – Greater Boston Legal Services LITC (800) 323-3205 – provides services to approximately 30 communities in the greater Boston area
- Jamaica Plain – Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School LITC (866) 738-8081 – provides services statewide
- Springfield – Springfield Partners LITC (413) 263-6500 – provides services throughout Berkshire, Hampden, and Hampshire counties
These clinics and other resources for tax assistance are listed on the DOR’s website.
