Location: Frazier Family Coalition

or via Zoom (Zoom link will be provided)

Speaker: Philadelphia Legal Assistance Tax Attorney Omeed Firouzi

The Taxpayer Support Clinic at Philadelphia Legal Assistance assists low-income taxpayers in Philadelphia who have disputes with the IRS. We assist individuals who have been audited for various reasons, including for claiming their kids, or who owe taxes but need to get into a collection alternative, among other issues. One of our focuses is challenging individuals’ worker misclassification: when a taxpayer is misclassified by their employer as an “independent contractor,” even though they are really an employee, and thus could be on the hook for more taxes than they should be.

*For those who attend in person, enjoy special give-aways and a boxed lunch.
