The Low Incomes Tax Reform Group (LITRG) is an initiative of the Chartered Institute of Taxation to give a voice to those who cannot afford to pay for tax advice.
It is often thought that the tax and financial affairs of those on low incomes are simple. This is far from the truth. A combination of complex laws and administrative systems not designed with the low income user in mind often make life difficult for those we try to help.
Everything we do is aimed at improving the tax and benefits experience of disabled people and carers, low income workers, pensioners, migrants and students. We generally take an income of around £15,000 as low for the purposes of our work. We do not offer an advice service, so please do not try to telephone. But if our website has been helpful to you, please do let us know through our Contact page.
