State Income Tax Clinic – California

This clinic, also known as the "Taxpayer Appeals Assistance Program (TAAP)—Franchise and Income Tax," is a joint effort between the USD Legal Clinics and the California State Board of Equalization (BOE). Under supervision of an attorney from the BOE's Taxpayer Rights Advocate Office, students assist taxpayers with state income tax disputes against the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB). Students receive legal practice skills training, including gathering and identifying evidence, drafting legal briefs and representing clients/taxpayers in negotiations with the FTB and at oral hearings before the BOE.

No prerequisites.
