The North Georgia Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) provides free tax law services to low-income people. They provide effective, compassionate service to those in need and conduct educational outreach activities to inform taxpayers about their rights and responsibilities in order to help better the community, state, and country.

Generally, they do not assist in the preparation of tax returns or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) applications.
