Free legal assistance for your clients December 2019 Tax News

As a tax professional, you may have filed an appeal or are preparing to file an appeal with the Office of Tax Appeals on behalf of your clients. As the end of the year approaches, we know how busy many of you are, so we wanted to remind you that the Tax Appeals Assistance Program (TAAP) is a valuable program that you may refer your clients to.

What the TAAP offers

The TAAP offers free legal assistance to eligible taxpayers who have filed an appeal with the Office of Tax Appeals on an action taken by the Franchise Tax Board. Under the supervision of a highly experienced attorney, law students represent your clients in matters related to their appeal. The TAAP can assist in cases where the amount being disputed or the amount of refund being claimed is less than $30,000 and involves certain tax issues. Please visit our website for more details.

Please contact us at or call (916) 845-6227 if you have questions or feel as though this may be a viable option for your client.
