Time: 10 a.m.–Noon
Location: Live at the Lansing Campus of Cooley Law School, and a simultaneous webcast at Cooley's Ann Arbor, Auburn Hills, and Grand Rapids campuses

Cost: FREE with commitment to accept a pro bono tax case

The training is free of charge with the commitment to accept a pro bono tax law case referral within six months from the PBI Michigan Litigation Assistance Partnership Program (MI-LAPP).

The training, provided by law school professors with many years of hands-on tax law experience, will provide the basics for handling a tax case, and overview the extensive reference and mentoring resources that will be available to attorneys participating in the program.

Eligible tax case referrals will include the following issues:

  • IRS liens and levies
  • Offers in compromise
  • Installment agreements
  • Innocent and injured spouse relief
  • Collection due process hearings and appeal conferences
  • Poverty exemptions
