Pro Bono Clinic Days Offer New Option to Help Pro Se Petitioners

Overview


Andrew Roberson praised low-income taxpayer clinics for advising pro se taxpayers before the Tax Court calendar call, noting that educating petitioners on tax procedures and IRS documentation can help resolve cases. “The Tax Court does a great job of putting the information out there in basic terms for pro se taxpayers, but the legal process, whether in Tax Court or elsewhere, can be very confusing to people, and a layperson might not understand how the process works,” Mr. Roberson observed.
