Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is working to make people aware of a special tax credit available if they work. With the exception of some who receive certain disability income, you must work for wages, or run a business or a farm to qualify for Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Workers who made less than $50,270 should see if they qualify for EITC by using the EITC Assistant, an interactive tool that shows who qualifies for the credit and the amount of the credit. Those who qualify for the credit can get free return preparation through volunteer sites. IRS certified volunteers will prepare your return and determine if you qualify for the EITC and other refundable credits. Click here to find a location for free tax return preparation near you.
