Tax Season is Here! Do You Know About the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit?

(Posted on 01/22/13)

Low to moderate income families may qualify for the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)! When filling out your federal tax return, you might be able to receive this tax credit. This means you may either receive more money for your tax return. Or, you will have to pay less tax at the end of the year. It is important that you know about the EITC because a tax credit usually means you will have more money in your pocket!

If a tax person helps you complete your tax return, make sure you ask about the EITC.

To learn more about this tax credit, go to www.irs.gov/eitc. Or, call 1-800-829-1040 Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. The call is free!
