You May Qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit
The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is the largest federal program benefiting low-to-moderate income workers. Last tax season, more than 25.8 million workers received over $63.8 billion in EITC refunds, lifting an estimated 6.5 million people out of poverty, half of whom were children.

This year, taxpayers with incomes below $53,930 may receive up to $6,318 in EITC dollars, depending on household size and other eligibility requirements.
