About the EITC
The EITC is a highly successful poverty-reduction tool. It benefits those who work, or have worked during the tax year. Depending on the EITC claim amount, the EITC can reduce or eliminate income taxes that are owed. If the EITC claim is more than the taxes owed, the difference will be refunded to the tax filer.
