Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Awareness Day

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) helps millions of workers like Amy keep more of what they earn to pay for things like reliable transportation to get to work, housing, and food. Amy is a college student and proud single mother to a little boy that just doesn’t seem to quit growing! “He outgrows shoes very fast…. little boys grow so fast!” When Amy had her taxes prepared at United Way’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance site, she found out that she’d be getting the EITC. She’ll use her return to pay down debts, buy groceries, and clothes for her little boy.

Hardworking Americans should be able to make ends meet. The EITC helps them do that. Let your representative know just how critical this pro-work, anti-poverty tax credit is for your neighbors, co-workers, friends and family.
