CPAs Needed for Low Income Taxpayer Controversy Pro Bono Panel · The University of New Mexico Low Income Taxpayer (Controversy) Clinic is actively recruiting CPAs for its newly created Pro Bono Panel. The Panel will supplement existing efforts to represent low-income taxpayers before the IRS. Currently, the UNM LITC takes about 100 cases annually, and is the only tax controversy clinic serving all counties in New Mexico.

The need. Low-income taxpayers who cannot afford representation, including the disabled and the elderly, are disproportionately audited by the IRS. They generally do not know how to respond – and lose their cases, often with devastating financial consequences. Most are also unaware of the collections alternatives, e.g. offers in compromise or currently not collectible status, available to them under the IRS Fresh Start Initiative.

Your role. Each CPA who agrees to become a panel member will be asked to take only one controversy case per calendar year and will have access to both training materials and expert technical assistance. Panel members will not be required to prepare Forms 1040 unless necessary to resolve a dispute.

Technical assistance. For those who need a refresher in low-income taxpayer issues, user friendly outlines and videotaped Clinic class sessions will be available. There is also a Pro Bono Panel Coordinator on board (Peter Marks) who can offer technical assistance.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the panel, please fill out the Practitioner Information Form and forward it to Peter Marks at marks@law.unm.edu. Peter is also available to answer questions about the Panel at 505-277-5265.
