EITC is the federal and state income tax credit available to low and moderate-income working families and individuals. This year Massachusetts leaders and activists want to make sure all eligible persons apply for EITC when they file their 2012 tax returns.
Eligible Families May Receive Up to $5,891 in Tax Credits. Check here to see if you are eligible.
In the 2011 tax year, MTAC sites prepared nearly 16,000 tax returns, returning more than $28 million to Massachusetts low-income working families and individuals, while saving them an estimated $3.2 million in high cost tax preparation services. Yet, thousands of people across the state do not file for these credits, leaving millions of dollars in unclaimed money in Washington, D.C. when it can help help families who need it, and circulate in the Massachusetts economy at a critical time.
