EITC eligibility is based on several factors, including the amount income and number of dependents you have. Workers without children may also qualify. The online EITC Assistant can help determine your eligibility and estimate the amount of your credit. Free help preparing your return and claiming EITC is available at volunteer income tax assistance sites. To locate a volunteer site, call 311 or call the IRS at 1-800-906-9887.
If you know or work with individuals who may be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit, please let them know about the opportunities available. The IRS has compiled a toolkit to help people spread the word.
