Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC)
If you worked in 2020 and your household income was less than $57,000, you may qualify for cash-back tax credits that can increase your refund.
The expanded California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC), along with a similar federal credit, can put thousands of dollars back in your pocket. You must file your taxes to claim the credits!
Workers with children under age 6 may also qualify for the Young Child Tax Credit—and receive up to an additional $1,000.
The average combined credit a family receives is $3,000.
Workers can file online for free or schedule an appointment for help with your tax filing. Learn more at www.OCFreeTaxPrep.com, a United for Financial Security Initiative empowered by Orange County United Way. The deadline to file is April 15, 2021.
