For the past four decades, the EITC has been considered the most effective poverty alleviation public policy tool in the country. In Washington, DC over 50,000 low-income Washingtonians benefit from the EITC and receive over $175 million from both the federal and the DC EITC. We estimate that about 20,000 EITC-eligible Washingtonian families are not taking advantage of this key tax credit and leaving over $40 million on the table every year. The majority of these families reside in Wards 7 and 8.
