Free tax law training to be offered June 8

The State Bar of Michigan Pro Bono Initiative (PBI) and Taxation Law Section, in partnership with the Low Income Tax Payer Clinics at the Michigan State University College of Law and University of Michigan Law School, will offer an in-person tax law training from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 8, at the Thomas M. Cooley Law School Lansing campus.

It will also be simultaneously broadcast to Cooley’s Ann Arbor, Auburn Hills, and Grand Rapids campuses.
 
The training will be presented by law school professors with many years of hands-on tax law experience, and will provide the basics for handling a tax case and an overview of the extensive reference and mentoring resources available to attorneys participating in the program. 
 
Topics to be covered include IRS liens and levies, offers in compromise, installment agreements, innocent and injured spouse relief, collection due process hearings and appeal conferences, poverty exemptions, tax audits, and individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) issues.
 
The training is free of charge with a commitment to join the Pro Bono Referral Panel and accept one pro bono tax case referral within six months of the date of the training. To register for the training, go to http://www.michbar.org/programs/tax_reg.cfm.
