One in five qualified people miss out on the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) each year – are you one of them?

No tax liability? Not required to file a return this year? Self-employed?

You might still qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a refundable tax credit, which means any credit left after eliminating any tax you might owe is considered part of your refund. The credit impacts low- to middle-income earners who may or may not have children. About one-third of people who qualify for the EITC are newly eligible each year because of changes in life circumstances. For example, you may qualify for the first time, or for more credit, if your hours were cut from full-time to part-time; or if you were laid off this year.

Find out if you can claim the EITC. Talk to a Tax Pro today so they can get you the maximum refund, guaranteed.
