FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Background Section 7526 of the Internal Revenue Code authorizes the IRS, subject to the availability of appropriated funds, to award organizations matching grants of up to $100,000 per year for the development, expansion, or continuation of qualified low income taxpayer clinics. Section 7526 authorizes the IRS to provide grants to qualified organizations that represent low income taxpayers in controversies with the IRS or inform individuals for whom English is a second language or who have limited English proficiency of their taxpayer rights and responsibilities. Qualified organizations must provide these services for free or for a nominal fee. The IRS may award grants to qualifying organizations to fund one-year, two-year or three-year project periods. Grant funds may be awarded for start-up expenditures incurred by new clinics during the grant cycle. The costs of preparing and submitting an application are the responsibility of each applicant. Each application will be given due consideration and the LITC Program Office will notify each applicant by mail of whether they were awarded a grant no later than November 30, 2007. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:54 May 22, 2007 Jkt 211001 Selection Considerations Applications that pass the eligibility screening process will be numerically ranked based on the information contained in each proposed program plan. Please note that the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) Programs are independently funded and separate from the LITC Program. Organizations currently participating in the VITA or TCE Programs may also be eligible to apply for a LITC grant if they meet the criteria and qualifications outlined in the 2008 Grant Application Package and Guidelines. Organizations that seek to operate VITA and LITC Programs, or TCE and LITC Programs, must maintain separate and distinct programs even if co-located to ensure proper cost allocation for LITC grant funds and adherence to the rules and regulations of the VITA, TCE, and LITC Programs, as appropriate. In addition to the criteria and qualifications outlined in the 2008 Grant Application Package and Guidelines, to foster parity regarding clinic availability and accessibility for taxpayers nationwide, the IRS will consider the geographic areas served by applicants as part of the decision-making process. Comments Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments on the IRS’s administration of the grant program on an ongoing basis.
