The State Bar of Michigan’s Tax Pro Bono Program (Tax Program), a statewide partnership between the Taxation Section of the State Bar of Michigan and Access to Justice Committee, will be conducting a free webinar training. This training is excellent for attorneys who are new to the area of tax law, as well as experienced attorneys looking for a refresher course. The webinar will survey the most common tax-related issues facing clients of the Tax Program.

Training topics will include:

  • IRS notices (notice of intent to lien or levy; notice of deficiency)
  • IRS liens or levies
  • Collection alternatives
    • Offers in Compromise
    • Installment Agreements
    • Currently Not Collectible
  • Innocent/injured spouse relief
  • ID theft and tax preparer fraud
  • Recovering back tax refunds (VITA sites)
  • Corresponding Michigan issues (Michigan collection alternatives)
  • Private collection agency actions

The training will be conducted by Professors Nicole Appleberry, Joshua Wease, and Christina Thompson, instructors at the low-income taxpayer clinics at MSU and U of M Law Schools.

If you are unable to attend the training but would like to be placed on the Tax Pro Bono Program’s pro bono attorney panel, please register here.

A recording of the training will be made available to all pro bono attorney panel members.
