Find out if you qualify for EITC.
Posted on Oct 24, 2013
If you worked, but earned less than $50,270 during 2012; you may qualify for EITC. The Earned Income Tax Credit, sometimes called EIC, is a tax credit to help you keep more of what you earned. When EITC exceeds the amount of taxes owed, it results in a tax refund to those who claim and qualify for the credit. To qualify, you must file a tax return to claim the credit and meet certain requirements. EITC was enacted to offset the burden of social security taxes and to provide an incentive to work. Last year, $87 million EITC dollars went unclaimed. Find out more about EITC and links to helpful tools and resources at www.irs.gov.
