What is EITC?
The United States federal earned income tax credit or earned income credit (EITC or EIC) is a refundable tax credit for low- to moderate-income working individuals and couples, particularly those with children. The amount of EITC benefit depends on a recipient’s income and number of children.
Each year, millions of dollars of unclaimed tax credits are unclaimed. VITA volunteers provide FREE income tax assistance to taxpayers and help them claim important tax credits such as EITC and the Child Tax Credit.
