Tax Season 2022 - Do you Qualify for EITC?
The Earned Income Tax Credit, EITC is a benefit for working people with low to moderate income. To qualify, you must meet certain requirements and file a tax return, even if you do not owe any tax or are not required to file. EITC reduces the amount of tax you owe and may give you a refund.
- About one-third of the EITC eligible population turns over each year.
- EITC can be a boost to you, your family and community. Anyone with earnings of $58,000 or less should see if they qualify at www.IRS.gov/eitc
- The EITC and CTC greatly reduce poverty for working families. These working-family tax credits lifted 8.9 million people out of poverty in 2017, including 4.8 million children, and made 20.2 million other people less poor.
- Millions of workers qualify for EITC for the first time this year, making awareness critical. Workers move into and out of eligibility based on changes in their marital, parental and financial status.
