Attention Washingtonians! If You Worked in 2018, Let the EITC Work for You!

If your family's income was less than $54,884 in 2018, please make sure you know about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and claim it. It's Your Money. Get It! 

For over 40 years, the EITC made life better for millions of workers throughout America. You may have extra money waiting for you. If you qualify and claim the credit, it could be worth $6,431 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 $54,884 from wages, running a business or farm or from Form 1099 Misc, check it out.

It’s easy to find out if you qualify. Please see the attached fact sheet for the EITC for 2018

EITC eligibility depends on several factors, including income and family size.

Community Tax Aid
www.communitytaxaiddc.org/

Community Tax Aid (CTA) was founded in 1987 with a mission to provide high-quality free income tax services to low-income taxpayers in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. CTA's primary goal is to promote economic stability through accurate and timely filing of tax returns and secondarily to connect taxpayers to other asset building opportunities.  Our services are critical to the financial well-being of low-income families and their ability to build wealth.  The tax return is required in order to obtain tax refunds and key credits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), and other asset-building opportunities, such as qualifying for academic financial aid/or obtaining a mortgage or a small business loan.  Annually, we help over 6,000 low-income taxpayers overcome barriers created by the cost and complexity of tax compliance so they can build their financial futures.
