EITC FormYOU EARNED IT...


The IRS may owe you money through the Earned Income Tax Credit. Contact NJCA to CLAIM IT and KEEP IT!

√ WHAT is the EITC?
The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a salary complement that entitles many working families up to $6,044 in refundable tax benefits.

√ WHO can get the EITC?
Anyone who worked at any time during the year and had an annual household income of $51,567 or less may be eligible.

√ HOW can I get the EITC?
You must file a tax return. Contact NJCA's Free Tax Preparation Center at 1-888-TAXES-11 (1-888-829-3711).

√ HOW MUCH money can I get?
The amount you may receive from the EITC depends on your income and family size. For example:

Sample EITC Refunds for 2013
AGI* = Adjusted Gross Income No Children One Qualifying Child
Two Qualifying Children Three or More Qualifying Children
Single

AGI less than $14,340

Max Credit $487

AGI less than $37,870

Max Credit $3,250

AGI less than $43,038

Max Credit $5,372

AGI less than $46,227

Max Credit $6,044

Married (filing jointly)

AGI less than $19,680

Max Credit $487

AGI less than $43,210

Max Credit $3,250

AGI less than $48,378

Max Credit $5,372

AGI less than $51,567

Max Credit $6,044

* AGI is gross income from taxable sources minus allowable adjustments.

√ DOES EITC affect my benefits?
No. In most cases, EITC will NOT be used to determine eligibility for Medicaid, SSI, food stamps, low-income housing or most TANF payments.

√ WHAT if I'm not eligible for EITC?
You may still receive FREE tax filing assistance with NJCA if your household income is less than $53,000.
