Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
The Earned Income Tax Credit, EITC, is a benefit for working people with low to moderate income.
To qualify, you must meet certain requirements and file a tax return, even if you do not owe any tax or are not required to file.
EITC reduces the amount of tax you owe and may give you a refund.
Additionally, Oregon and Washington have a state version of the EITC to supplement the federal credit.
State EITC programs use the same eligibility rules as the federal EITC.
