Northeast New Jersey Legal Services-Low Income Taxpayer Project

Northeast New Jersey Legal Services-Low Income Taxpayer Project

Providing free legal services to low-income Bergen, Hudson and Passaic County residents in federal tax law matters

Get FREE legal help for your tax problems.

The LOW INCOME TAXPAYER CLINIC (LITC) is part of Northeast New Jersey Legal Services (NNJLS) a private, non-profit legal services organization which provides free legal services to eligible, low-income individuals in Bergen, Hudson and Passaic Counties.

Who are We?

Northeast New Jersey Legal Services is a non-profit corporation supported with both public and private funds providing free legal services to low-income, senior and disabled residents of Bergen, Hudson and Passaic Counties in a variety of legal matters including federal income tax controversies, public benefits, housing, family, health care, employment, consume and immigration. We provide a broad array of legal services, including legal representation in court and at hearings, advocacy, legal advice and community legal education.

Our attorneys, paralegals and support staff are dedicated to providing the highest quality legal services. We seek to assure that access to the judicial system is not denied to individuals within our service areas simply because they cannot afford a private attorney.

The LITC and its employees and volunteers are not affiliated with the IRS.  A taxpayer’s decision to use the LITC will not affect the taxpayer’s rights before the IRS.

We speak Spanish and can arrange for translators to assist clients in many other languages.

How can we help?

The Low Income Taxpayer Clinic provides assistance with federal income tax controversies related to:

*Earned Income Tax Credit

*Child Tax Credit

*Innocent Spouse Relief

*Help Preventing Tax Levies & Collections

What should you do if you need an Attorney?

Contact us! We will determine if you are financially eligible for our services and also whether you have the type of legal problem we handle. If eligible, one of our case handlers will discuss with you the best course of action. We also will make special arrangements for the homebound and people with disabilities.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" ( 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
