Earned Income Credit
You may qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit, or EITC, if you worked last year, but did not earn a lot of money. EITC is a refundable tax credit meaning you could qualify for a tax refund even if you did not have federal income tax withheld. If you qualify, the amount of your EITC will depend on whether you have children, the number of children you have, and the amount of your wages and income last year. For more information or to see if you qualify, go to www.irs.gov/eitc or call 1–800–829–3676.
