Helping people

 understand the benefits of working.



The Federal and State Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) are available to employees whose incomes fall below a certain level, to assist them with keeping more of the money they earn. In most cases, the EITC does not affect Temporary Assistance benefits, Medicaid, Food Stamps, or Public or Subsidized Housing. Free assistance with filing tax forms is available through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA).

  • For more information about the EITC call 1-800-TAX-1040
  • For information about the VITA Program call 442-3242
