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

In addition to the EITC, some families also can get the Child Tax Credit (CTC), which can be worth up to $1000 per child.

The credits can reduce the amount of income taxes workers owe – but even workers who owe no taxes can qualify for credits. Want to learn more about these credits and if you qualify?
