The University of San Diego and Legal Aid Society of San Diego were awarded grants by the Internal Revenue Service Tuesday to fund programs that assist low-income residents who have federal tax disputes.
The IRS provided $1 million in grants to a dozen organizations in California that run low-income tax clinics for the public. Nationwide, nearly $10 million was given to 133 groups.
USD received $89,000 and the Legal Aid Society got $75,000, according to the IRS.
The clinics provide free or low-cost representation before the IRS, and provide education and outreach to non-English speakers.
