Tax Credit

Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)

Internal Revenue Service

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable federal tax credit for eligible low- and moderate-income individuals and families who work. The EITC reduces the amount of tax you owe. It may give you a refund from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Eligibility rules are based on your family income and number of children. There is a maximum amount that each family can receive. Married workers must file a joint tax return to qualify. The credit is available if you have biological, adopted or foster children. You can also apply for children at any age who have “total and permanent” disabilities. Adult children who have mental retardation may automatically qualify if their physical or mental condition prevents them from working a regular job. You must have Social Security numbers for all the children you list.

Child Tax Credit

Internal Revenue Service

The Child Tax Credit is available to taxpayers who have dependent children. Families do not receive any direct cash payment. Single parents with incomes up to $75,000 and married parents with incomes up to $110,000 are eligible. The most credit you can receive is $500 per child.

Your children must be under age 17 and you must claim them as dependents on your federal tax return. You can claim the credit for a son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter, stepson, stepdaughter or an eligible foster child. If your family income is so low that you owe no income tax, you generally do not qualify unless you have three or more children. Then you may qualify for the “Additional Child Tax Credit.” (http://www.irs.gov)
