KEEP MORE OF YOUR
HARD-EARNED MONEY

Households earning less than $57,000 may qualify for hundreds or thousands of dollars of cash back in California and federal Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) – but only if you file your taxes!

EARN IT. KEEP IT. SAVE IT.

California and federal Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) are available to low-to-moderate income individuals and families.

If you are a low-to-moderate income worker, you could qualify for hundreds or thousands of dollars in cash back tax credits when you file your tax return. These credits include the federal earned income tax credit (EITC), the California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC) and the Young Child Tax Credit (YCTC).

NEW for 2020 tax returns: The CalEITC has been expanded to tax filers who use an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).
