Bookstein Tax Clinic - Prospective Clients

Client Screening
All prospective clients are initially screened by the Clinic and placed on a waiting list.  Please bear in mind that our wait list can be over a month long, due to the fact that we service the Greater Los Angeles area.  This waiting list is on a first come, first serve basis. 

To Get On The Waiting List - please go to our Bookstein Tax Clinic Screening Form or call our Clinic at 818-677-3600.  Hours are M-F 9am-6 pm.

Client Eligibility
Once a prospective client comes off the waiting list, clinicians will then meet with the prospective client to determine eligibility.  You may be eligible if you meet these requirements:

  • You owe money to the IRS and not just the Franchise Tax Board (the State of California.)  If you owe the IRS and the FTB, this does not make you ineligible.
  • The amount the IRS claims you owe on a given year is less than $50,000.
  • Your household total income--you, and any spouse or dependents--does not exceed 250% of the current Federal Poverty Guidelines, as show below.
