The MSU College of Law Alvin L. Storrs Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic is a free legal-aid clinic that provides legal services to low-income taxpayers who are in controversy with the Internal Revenue Service and educational services relating to tax matters to those for whom English is a second language. We will arrange to meet with clients at other times on an as-needed basis. The Tax Clinic also provides important tax-related legal services to indigent Michigan taxpayers. At the same time, the Tax Clinic offers an excellent clinical education program for MSU College of Law students, extending learning beyond the classroom for the benefit of the community.
