You may also be eligible for the California Earned Income Tax Credit

The California Earned Income Tax Credit (Cal EITC) is a cash back tax credit that puts money back in the pockets of working Californians. The way the Cal EITC works is simple. If you’re working for a low wage, you get money back based on how much you earned and how many children you have. Receiving the Cal EITC will not affect your eligibility for any other public benefits. Since 2015, we’ve helped over 2 million people claim $4 billion in state and federal tax credits. At a time when hard work alone is no guarantee you’ll be able to provide for your family, the Cal EITC makes hard work pay better.

To find out if you're eligible, and to locate FREE help filing your taxes go to CalEITC4Me.org.
