Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable tax credit for people who work but do not have high incomes. Essentially, in order for someone to receive this credit at tax time, they have to have worked and they must file a federal tax return (even if they are not required to file). It is estimated that $51-70 million of the EITC goes unclaimed in Utah each year.
