Federal Income Tax Credit

The Earned Income Tax Credit Program is a refundable federal tax credit for certain low income workers. This program may reduce your federal tax burden.  If you qualify for the tax credit it will reduce the amount of federal income tax owed to the IRS.  If you owe no federal income tax, you will receive the credit in the form of a refund. If you qualify, in order to receive the credit you must: 

  1. File a federal income tax return (Form 1040A or Form 1040) and;

  2. Complete Schedule "EIC" and attach it to your return.
