Who Can Help You?
The Legal Aid Society of San Diego, Inc. (LASSD) provides free legal assistance through its Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic. LASSD and its Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic are not a part of or affiliated with the IRS. Instead, through the Clinic, LASSD advises low-income taxpayers concerning federal income tax issues. Through our in-house tax attorney or through pro bono volunteer attorneys, we also represent low-income taxpayers in dealing with the IRS or in Tax Court, when appropriate.
What Types of Tax Problems Do We Handle?
The Clinic helps Taxpayers with federal individual income tax matters. Normally, we don not assist with California state income tax matters. Some of the kinds of federal tax matters that the Clinic handles include:
If you have a federal income tax problem or issue, call LASSD at 877LEGAL-AID (877.534.2524)
Help is available at a local Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site. For the location and hours of the nearest VITA site, call the InfoLine of San Diego county at 211 or 619.230.0997.

Provide a "hand-up" rather than a handout by stabilizing families in crisis. This allows families to benefit from employment development placement and ongoing support. For more information, call Home Start, Inc. at 619.283.3624.

Provides financial education to families and individuals around budgeting, banking, credit, and assets building. For more information, call Home Start, Inc. at 619.283.9624.
