Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
A refundable tax credit from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that helps boost the incomes of low-wage, working families. One of the nation’s most effective anti-poverty tools, the federal EITC lifts more than 6.5 million families out of poverty each year. In 2013, more than 354,000 Colorado taxpayers received $772 million in EITC refunds. Learn more from the Piton Foundation here.
