The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and other important refundable tax credits, including the Premium Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and American Opportunity Tax Credit are federal tax refunds available to millions of low to moderate income individuals and families. The IRS estimates that up to 25 percent of eligible taxpayers nationwide neglect to claim the credit because they do not know these credits exist.
To learn more about EITC and other refundable tax credits, or find the location near you, call the IRS at 1-800-906-9887, or visit www.irs.gov/eitc to determine if you qualify by answering a few questions using the EITC Assistant.
