Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Program Reports on Activities

IR-2014-21, March 5, 2014

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service’s Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) Program Office issued its second annual program report on how LITCs assist thousands of low income taxpayers nationwide with pro bono representation, education, and advocacy services.

The LITCs provide free or low-cost assistance to low income taxpayers who have a tax dispute with the IRS, such as an audit or collection matter, and conduct education and outreach to taxpayers who speak English as a second language (ESL).  LITCs also advocate for low income taxpayers and highlight the need to change administrative practices and procedures that cause their clients economic hardship. 

“The LITCs help taxpayers achieve favorable outcomes in cases, access benefits administered through the tax system, and resolve tax debts, levies, and liens.  During 2012, LITCs helped taxpayers secure more than $5.8 million in tax refunds and eliminate nearly $35.5 million in tax liabilities, penalties and interest,” said William P. Nelson, LITC Program Director.  The report provides an overview and history of the LITC Program, discusses the type of work the LITCs perform, and explains how their work helps ensure the fairness and integrity of the tax system. 

The LITC program has a three-prong mission to represent, educate, and advocate for taxpayers.  Included in the report are several stories that provide examples of how LITCs have helped taxpayers.  One taxpayer was facing a levy action that put her in danger of losing her home but the LITC was able to negotiate an offer in compromise to eliminate the debt and keep the taxpayer in her home.  LITCs employ staff but also rely on the contributions of volunteers.  In 2012, taxpayers benefited from over 59,000 volunteer hours provided by nearly 2,300 LITC volunteers.

The LITC program awards matching grants of up to $100,000 per year to qualifying organizations to develop, expand, or maintain a low income taxpayer clinic.  The grant program is administered by the Office of the Taxpayer Advocate at the IRS, led by the National Taxpayer Advocate.  Although LITCs receive partial funding from the IRS, LITCs, their employees and volunteers operate independently from the IRS.  LITCs are generally operated by:

  • clinical programs at accredited law, business, or accounting schools;
  • legal aid or legal services organizations; and
  • other tax exempt organizations that serve low income individuals and families.

The Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Program Report is available at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p5066.pdf.

I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez 9% Additional Medicare Tax from wages you pay to an employee in excess of $200,000 in a calendar year. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Also, self-employed individuals may be required to pay Additional Medicare Tax on self-employment income. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez See Employment Taxes , and Self-employment tax , later. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Introduction You can deduct various federal, state, local, and foreign taxes directly attributable to your trade or business as business expenses. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez You cannot deduct federal income taxes, estate and gift taxes, or state inheritance, legacy, and succession taxes. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Topics - This chapter discusses: When to deduct taxes Real estate taxes Income taxes Employment taxes Other taxes Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 15 (Circular E), Employer's Tax Guide 334 Tax Guide for Small Business 510 Excise Taxes 538 Accounting Periods and Methods 551 Basis of Assets Form (and Instructions) Sch A (Form 1040) Itemized Deductions Sch SE (Form 1040) Self-Employment Tax 3115 Application for Change in Accounting Method 8959 Additional Medicare Tax See chapter 12 for information about getting publications and forms. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez When To Deduct Taxes Generally, you can only deduct taxes in the year you pay them. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez This applies whether you use the cash method or an accrual method of accounting. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Under an accrual method, you can deduct a tax before you pay it if you meet the exception for recurring items discussed under Economic Performance in Publication 538. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez You can also elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes as discussed later under Real Estate Taxes . I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Limit on accrual of taxes. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   A taxing jurisdiction can require the use of a date for accruing taxes that is earlier than the date it originally required. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez However, if you use an accrual method, and can deduct the tax before you pay it, use the original accrual date for the year of change and all future years to determine when you can deduct the tax. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Example. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Your state imposes a tax on personal property used in a trade or business conducted in the state. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez This tax is assessed and becomes a lien as of July 1 (accrual date). I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez In 2013, the state changed the assessment and lien dates from July 1, 2014, to December 31, 2013, for property tax year 2014. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Use the original accrual date (July 1, 2014) to determine when you can deduct the tax. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez You must also use the July 1 accrual date for all future years to determine when you can deduct the tax. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Uniform capitalization rules. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   Uniform capitalization rules apply to certain taxpayers who produce real property or tangible personal property for use in a trade or business or for sale to customers. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez They also apply to certain taxpayers who acquire property for resale. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Under these rules, you either include certain costs in inventory or capitalize certain expenses related to the property, such as taxes. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez For more information, see chapter 1. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Carrying charges. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   Carrying charges include taxes you pay to carry or develop real estate or to carry, transport, or install personal property. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez You can elect to capitalize carrying charges not subject to the uniform capitalization rules if they are otherwise deductible. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez For more information, see chapter 7. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Refunds of taxes. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   If you receive a refund for any taxes you deducted in an earlier year, include the refund in income to the extent the deduction reduced your federal income tax in the earlier year. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez For more information, see Recovery of amount deducted (tax benefit rule) in chapter 1. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez    You must include in income any interest you receive on tax refunds. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Real Estate Taxes Deductible real estate taxes are any state, local, or foreign taxes on real estate levied for the general public welfare. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez The taxing authority must base the taxes on the assessed value of the real estate and charge them uniformly against all property under its jurisdiction. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Deductible real estate taxes generally do not include taxes charged for local benefits and improvements that increase the value of the property. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez See Taxes for local benefits , later. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez If you use an accrual method, you generally cannot accrue real estate taxes until you pay them to the government authority. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez However, you can elect to ratably accrue the taxes during the year. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez See Electing to ratably accrue , later. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Taxes for local benefits. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   Generally, you cannot deduct taxes charged for local benefits and improvements that tend to increase the value of your property. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez These include assessments for streets, sidewalks, water mains, sewer lines, and public parking facilities. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez You should increase the basis of your property by the amount of the assessment. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   You can deduct taxes for these local benefits only if the taxes are for maintenance, repairs, or interest charges related to those benefits. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez If part of the tax is for maintenance, repairs, or interest, you must be able to show how much of the tax is for these expenses to claim a deduction for that part of the tax. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Example. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez To improve downtown commercial business, Waterfront City converted a downtown business area street into an enclosed pedestrian mall. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez The city assessed the full cost of construction, financed with 10-year bonds, against the affected properties. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez The city is paying the principal and interest with the annual payments made by the property owners. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez The assessments for construction costs are not deductible as taxes or as business expenses, but are depreciable capital expenses. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez The part of the payments used to pay the interest charges on the bonds is deductible as taxes. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Charges for services. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   Water bills, sewerage, and other service charges assessed against your business property are not real estate taxes, but are deductible as business expenses. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Purchase or sale of real estate. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   If real estate is sold, the real estate taxes must be allocated between the buyer and the seller. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   The buyer and seller must allocate the real estate taxes according to the number of days in the real property tax year (the period to which the tax imposed relates) that each owned the property. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Treat the seller as paying the taxes up to but not including the date of sale. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Treat the buyer as paying the taxes beginning with the date of sale. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez You can usually find this information on the settlement statement you received at closing. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   If you (the seller) use an accrual method and have not elected to ratably accrue real estate taxes, you are considered to have accrued your part of the tax on the date you sell the property. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Example. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Alberto Verde, a calendar year accrual method taxpayer, owns real estate in Olmo County. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez He has not elected to ratably accrue property taxes. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez November 30 of each year is the assessment and lien date for the current real property tax year, which is the calendar year. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez He sold the property on June 30, 2013. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Under his accounting method he would not be able to claim a deduction for the taxes because the sale occurred before November 30. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez He is treated as having accrued his part of the tax, 181/366  (January 1–June 29), on June 30, and he can deduct it for 2013. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Electing to ratably accrue. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   If you use an accrual method, you can elect to accrue real estate tax related to a definite period ratably over that period. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Example. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Juan Sanchez is a calendar year taxpayer who uses an accrual method. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez His real estate taxes for the real property tax year, July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2014, are $1,200. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez July 1 is the assessment and lien date. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez If Juan elects to ratably accrue the taxes, $600 will accrue in 2013 ($1,200 × 6/12, July 1–December 31) and the balance will accrue in 2014. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Separate elections. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   You can elect to ratably accrue the taxes for each separate trade or business and for nonbusiness activities if you account for them separately. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Once you elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes, you must use that method unless you get permission from the IRS to change. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez See Form 3115 , later. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Making the election. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   If you elect to ratably accrue the taxes for the first year in which you incur real estate taxes, attach a statement to your income tax return for that year. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez The statement should show all the following items. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez The trades or businesses to which the election applies and the accounting method or methods used. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez The period to which the taxes relate. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez The computation of the real estate tax deduction for that first year. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez   Generally, you must file your return by the due date (including extensions). I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez However, if you timely filed your return for the year without electing to ratably accrue, you can still make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months after the due date of the return (excluding extensions). I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. I need tax instruction booklet for 1040ez 9100-2” on the statement.
