California – Earned Income Tax Credit (CA EITC)

The Earned Income Tax Credit (or EITC) is a tax credit for low-to-moderate-income working individuals and families.

You may qualify for more than $6,000 in refunds from the California AND Federal Earned Income Tax Credits!

The California EITC specifically is now even bigger and better:

  • It applies to families making up to $24,950 (up from $14,161 in 2016).
  • Self-employed individuals now may qualify!
  • If the credit is larger than your California tax liability or if you don’t owe any tax to California, you will get a refund!
  • If you owe any California taxes, your tax liability will be reduced by the credit amount.

To find out if you qualify for the credits, visit www.caleitc4me.org/earn-it!

NOTE: You may not be required to file a tax return or owe any tax, but could still be eligible for money back!
