The California Earned Income Tax Credit is a cash-back tax credit that puts money back in the pockets of California’s working families and individuals, now including anyone over the age of 18!
The amount of your cash back tax credit depends on a few things:
- Size of your family
- Dependent status
If you earned $24,950 or less in 2018 and are a Citizen or Legal Permanent Resident, you may qualify for the Cal EITC. If you earned $53,930 or less in 2018, you may qualify for the Federal EITC. Qualifying income includes wages, salaries, tips, and self-reported income.
