Life's a Little Easier with EITC

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) estimates that four of five eligible taxpayers received their Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) last year. This means millions of additional taxpayers are getting the credit they've earned. The information on this page was created by the IRS to put valuable EITC information at the fingertips of the Head Start partner network as well as other IRS partners. The information may assist in continuing to inform, to educate, and to encourage the community of eligible taxpayers and tax preparers.

The following information is provided courtesy of the Internal Revenue Service - Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
