11th Annual EITC Awareness Day

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.

How can you raise awareness in your community? Here are 5 ways from the Get It Back Campaign and Center for Economic Development to raise EITC Awareness:

  1. Post this on social media
  2. Join the EITC Awareness Day Thunderclap
  3. Use CFED’s EITC Day Toolkit with sample social media posts, state data snapshots that explain the impact of EITC, and more
  4. Share community-specific news releases and other IRS EITC Awareness Day resources
