With tax season fast approaching the IRS would like to ensure you have the best information available to make informed decisions on tax matters as you prepare your 2010 income tax returns.
The EITC is for people who work at least part of the year but have lower incomes. If you qualify, it could be worth up to $5,657 this year. So you could pay less federal tax or even get a refund. That’s money you can use to make a difference in your life.
The IRS anticipates that many who had reduced incomes in 2009 may qualify for the EITC but may not be aware it exists.
Did you know that last year nearly 24 million taxpayers received $49 billion in EITC – making the credit a great investment in the lives of those who claim it? However, the IRS estimates 20 percent to 25 percent of people who qualify for the credit do not claim it. At the same time, there are millions of Americans who have claimed the credit in error, many of whom simply don’t understand the criteria.
It’s easy to determine whether you qualify for the EITC. The EITC Assistant, an interactive tool available on IRS.gov, removes the guesswork from eligibility rules. Just answer a few simple questions about yourself, your children, your living situation and your income to find out if you qualify and to estimate the amount of your EITC. You will see the results of your responses right away. «Read the rest of this article»
