Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) can give a refund to low wage workers...even if you don't owe Income Tax!
hat is Earne Income Tax Credit?
EITC is a refundable tax credit available from IRS.
Working adults without children earning up to $15,880
Working adults with at least two children earning as much as $41,646
The credit can be as large as $4,824. The average EITC credit for Cuyahoga County in 2006 was $1,918.
It is estimated that between 15 and 20 percent of eligible workers, in highly urban areas, do not claim this credit. (need a cite!)
