News You Can Use

Tax season is just around the corner, and we would like to remind our customers and the community that a significant number of families in California may be eligible to receive a state and/or federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for 2016. The EITC is a tax credit for low and moderate income individuals and families, and will not be counted as income for families receiving CalWORKs assistance. Some families who didn’t pay any income tax in 2016 will also qualify for an EITC. To receive an EITC, individuals and families must file a tax return, even if they do not owe any tax or are not required to file.
For more information about the federal EITC, visit the IRS Earned Income Tax Credit page at:
