It’s Tax Time: Do you know about the California Earned Income Tax Credit?

time for taxes

Have you heard of the California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC)? It’s a relatively new tax credit, and is similar to the Earned Income Tax Credit that the federal government provides. In the first year, the CalEITC provided almost $200 million to about 385,000 families throughout California, according to the CalEITC4me website. 

In fact, the website has an EITC Calculator you can use to see if you’re eligible and how much money you could receive.  Click here to use it.

And, if you’re looking for free help to do your taxes, check out the United Ways California My Free Taxes website to locate a free tax prep site (some eligibility requirements apply: for an in-person appointment, you must make $54,000 or less, for online, you must make $64,000 or less)
