Earned Income Tax Credit

Also called the EITC. A dollar-for-dollar reduction in the tax liability for lower and middle income persons in the United States. The credit is applied against taxes owed on wages, salaries, tips and other forms of earned income. Investment income is excluded and one may not have more than a certain amount of investment income to be eligible for the credit. Households with children may receive larger credits. The EITC is refundable, meaning if the credit causes one's tax liability to go below zero, one receives the difference from the IRS.
