Additional Tax Filing Resources

Here are a few additional resources for help filing your taxes:

Earned Income Tax Credit

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) helps low- to moderate-income workers and families get a tax break. If you qualify, you can use the credit to reduce the taxes you owe – and maybe increase your refund. The amount of your credit may change if you have children, dependents, are disabled, or meet other criteria. Using this credit may affect other government benefits for some types of workers, like the military and clergy. If you claim the EITC credit, your refund may be delayed. By law, refunds to taxpayers who claim the Earned Income Tax will not begin until mid-February.

For more about EITC, visit the IRS website.

The IRS has created an EITC qualification assistant to help you find out if you qualify and estimate your credit amount.
