Legal Portal Aims to Clear up Confusion, Provide Answers

St. Paul, Minnesota – April 11, 2011

With millions of low-income Americans still not claiming potential tax credits, www.LawHelpMN.org offers critical assistance to ensure that Minnesota residents don’t miss out on a possible refund check. LawHelpMN.org, part of the national LawHelp.org network of nonprofit legal information portals, offers a variety of free tools and information for those grappling with tax preparation.

More than 26 million eligible taxpayers received a total of nearly $59 billion last year from the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), according to the IRS. Yet an estimated one out of five eligible taxpayers doesn’t take advantage of the EITC.

Resources accessible from LawHelpMN.org include easy-to-understand information about the EITC and other rebates and credits, as well as other information about state and federal taxes; links to sites offering free tax filing; referrals to organizations that offer free or low-cost help; information on avoiding tax scams; information for those facing special circumstances and more.  

LawHelpMN.org is Minnesota’s online source of free legal aid referrals, know-your-rights information and a variety of self-help tools.  LawHelpMN.org is maintained by Minnesota Legal Services Coalition, in conjunction with Pro Bono Net, a nonprofit leader in increasing access to justice for the disadvantaged.  LawHelpMN.org was launched in 2003 and now serves more than 500,000 visitors a year.  Both LawHelp.org and I-CAN! E-File, the free electronic tax filing system, were developed with support from the Legal Services Corporation.
