  • Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Program As an organization or agency serving low-income families in New Jersey, you can help the people you serve have more available cash by promoting the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) program. What is EITC? It is a special federal and state tax benefit for low-income working families and individuals that may:
    • Increase the tax refund to be received,
    • Decrease the amount of taxes owed, or
    • Provide a refund even if taxes are not owed.
    Depending on the income of the taxpayer, the federal EITC credit can be between $506 to $6,269, and a state credit can be as much as $178 to $2,195. How Can You Promote EITC?
    • Forward this web page to all your partnering agencies.
    • Distribute the EITC flyer.
    • Talk to your clients about the program.
    • Provide your clients with free tax preparation information. New Jersey individuals and families whose 2016 earnings were lower than $54,000 can get their taxes prepared free of charge. To find out where you can get free help filing your taxes, call the NJ Community Resource Hotline at 211 or 1-877-652-1148; or if you make $60,000 or less, you can prepare your own taxes for FREE by visiting myfreetaxes.com. It’s easy. It’s safe. It’s free.
