  • Did you know California has a tax credit for working families? It’s called the California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC) and it is modeled after the federal credit. And now it’s even better! What is new?
      • A parent with an income of $22,300 or less may benefit from the credit if they have one or more qualifying children. That means a parent working full-time at the state minimum wage of roughly $10 per hour could qualify.
      • Now, for the first time, those who earned self-employment income may qualify for the credit. Both 1099 filers and cash earners qualify.
      • With the combined federal and state credits eligible families can get up to $6,000 back after filing their taxes. What would you do with an extra $6,000 dollars?

 

      • To get your cash back, simply file your state and federal tax returns for FREE.  Call 2-1-1 for free tax preparation sites or file online for free here.
