Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a Federal tax credit for qualified low-income workers who have a valid Social Security Number. Eligibility is based on your income and the number of children you have at home. This may include biological, foster, permanently disabled, step, and adopted children. Even if you did not earn enough to file a tax return, you must file a return in order to receive the refund.
