Pro Bono Training: Why Immigration Advocates Should Care About PATH

Topics:
  • Other Immigration
  • Advocacy

Congress passed the Protection Against Tax Hikes (PATH) Act in December 2015. This unexpected federal law made some tax credits permanent and also impacted the validity of ITINs and the ability of clients to obtain tax credits and/or refunds depending when they receive their Tax Identification Number. This training will create alert advocates who will know how to spot tax issues and related tax benefits for their immigrant clients, and may be able to prevent clients from missing deadlines for those benefits. After the training, attorneys may donate time to the GBLS Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic in-house or by accepting pro bono cases.
