For the last 40 years, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) has been making life better for millions of workers. You may have extra money waiting for you. If you qualify and claim the credit, it could be as much as $6,318 from the IRS for some workers.
Don’t be the one in five that misses this credit. If you or someone you know earned less than $53,930 from wages, check to see if you qualify for EITC by using the EITC Assistant. Or, ask any of our IRS-certified volunteers at one of our tax sites when you have your federal tax return prepared, e-filed and direct deposited for FREE, if you made less than $66,000 last year.
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is funded by United Way Suncoast as part of our fight for the financial stability and education of every person in our community. Because everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
