What is Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)?
EITC is a federal income tax credit for people who work, but don't earn much money. If you qualify, it could be worth up to $5,751 this year. So you could pay less federal tax or even get a refund. But it's not just about the money, it's about the difference it can make in your life. Download the EITC informational brochure here to find out more about Earned Income Tax Credit, your eligibility, and the benefits.
