One in five eligible workers overlooks an important tax credit that can boost their finances: the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). You may qualify for it if you worked any part of last year and earned low to moderate income.
The amount you potentially can get depends on your income, family size, and other factors. Families with qualifying children can get thousands of dollars with their tax refund. Individuals with no children may also qualify, but for a smaller amount.
Income sources can include wages, self-employment, or farm income.
Our office can help you determine if you qualify for the EITC, or you can go to IRS.gov/eitc and select the EITC Assistant.
