Professor Linda Galler chaired a panel on Dec. 6 at the 2018 Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) Grantee Conference in Washington, D.C.
Other members of the panel, “Ethics: Practice Before the IRS and U.S. Tax Court,” were Hon. Lewis R. Carluzzo, chief special trial judge, U.S. Tax Court, and Stephen Whitlock, director, IRS Office of Professional Responsibility.
The conference was attended by representatives of approximately 150 low-income taxpayer clinics from 49 states and the District of Columbia.
The Hofstra Law Federal Tax Clinic, directed by Professor Galler, was recently awarded a $90,000 grant. This is the third year in which the Hofstra Tax Clinic has received a grant under a program administered by the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service.
Hofstra Law students enrolled in the Federal Tax Clinical Practicum represent low-income taxpayers in regular and small case proceedings before the U.S. Tax Court; in IRS examinations, appeals and collections matters; and before the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.
