Tax Law

This page is funded by LITC (Low Income Taxpayer Clinic) Grant.

LITC serves taxpayers who earn up to 250% of poverty.  Wisconsin Judicare's LITC staff assist with tax controversies and provide information about taxpayer rights and responsibilities. The LITC generally does not provide tax preparation services.

If you use a paid tax preparer to file your federal income tax return this year, the IRS urges you to choose that preparer carefully.  Even if someone else prepares your return, you are legally responsible for what is on it.


The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC, or EIC) puts money back into the pockets of qualifying low- and moderate-income working taxpayers when they file their tax returns. Higher income limits and credits this year mean more filers will qualify for the EITC, and those who do qualify will get a bigger check.
