Did you know that 1 in 5 eligible workers overlooks the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)?
You may qualify for it if you worked at all last year, and earned $52,000 or less from wages, self-employment income, or farming.
Exactly how much the credit will be depends on your income, family size, and other factors. Families with qualifying children can get up to $6,000. The average credit last year was more than $2,300.
The IRS is working hard to raise awareness about the EITC, while also trying to prevent fraudulent claims for the tax credit.
