Educate Yourself on EITC

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a benefit for working people with low to moderate income, is one of the most underutilized tax credits available and lifts more children out of poverty than any other program. To qualify, you must meet certain requirements and file a tax return. By claiming this credit, you can maximize your refund.

Maximum Credit Amounts

The maximum amount of credit for Tax Year 2017 is:

  • $6,318 with three or more qualifying children
  • $5,616 with two qualifying children
  • $3,400 with one qualifying child
  • $510 with no qualifying children
