Tax Credits


Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC):

A refundable tax credit from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to boost incomes of low-wage, working families. Eligibility for EITC depends on several factors such as filing status, income level, the number of qualifying children in the household, and citizenship. 

Learn more about eligibility or use the EITC calculator to estimate your credit.
