EITC – the EITC is a powerful credit that helps working families keep more of what they earn to pay for the basics like transportation to get to work, housing and food. But currently, lower-income working Americans not raising children at home are eligible for little to no EITC. Young people age 21-24 are entirely ineligible. So while the EITC is one of the most effective tools we have to help working families keep their heads above water, it excludes millions of workers.
Stories are a powerful tool to help our elected officials understand the real-life impacts of EITC on local individuals and families. You may choose to keep your story anonymous if you prefer.
