Do you know about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)? Even if you didn’t work very much last year and don’t have to file a tax return – you might qualify for a substantial refund by claiming the earned income tax credit. The EITC is often touted as the nation's largest and most successful anti-poverty program. In 2015, the EITC and CTC together brought 9.8 million people out of poverty nationally. Check out this week's resources below to see if you qualify.

Spread the word about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).

Oregonians leave millions of EITC dollars on the table each year that could go primarily to low-income women and children. Any household making less than $54,000 annually could receive over $6,000 per year back. Encourage everyone to file and see if they qualify.
