EITC is a tax credit that can return as much as $5,751 to people earning less
than $49, 078. The Internal Revenue Service estimates four of five eligible
workers claim and get their EITC. It is NOT automatic. Some not so great tax softwares will not even find it for you. You have to do a search for it. Don’t miss it.
To get their credit, workers must file federal income tax returns, even if they are
not otherwise required to file, and specifically claim the credit.
