EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT (EITC)
The Earned Income Tax Credit, EITC or EIC, 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.
To qualify for EITC
you must have earned income from working for someone or from running or owning a business or farm and meet basic rules.
And, you must either meet additional rules for workers without a qualifying child or have a child that meets all the
qualifying child rules for you.
