Earned Income Tax Credit

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable cash-back tax credit for low-income working families and individuals. It is one of the most effective tools in America to lift families out of poverty.

California joined 24 other states and the District of Columbia to adopt a state EITC, known as CalEITC, to supplement the federal EITC. In its first year, the CalEITC boosted the income of about 385,000 people, who received close to $200 million from the credit.
