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.
MyPublicBenefits.org is a campaign run by Golden State Opportunity (GSO) to connect Californians with programs and services that improve their lives. GSO works closely with government agencies and community groups to ensure those who are eligible receive the support they qualify for and deserve.
