What Is Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)?

Geared primarily towards low-to-middle income, working individuals and families, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a federal benefit able to provide relief to those who meet specific criteria, by reducing the amount of tax owed and by increasing the amount of tax monies refunded, as determined after filing. Both single and married people can benefit from EITC, regardless of whether or not they have children or other dependents.
