Save more money – Earned Income Tax Credits

You could earn up to $6,500 through the state (Cal EITC) and federal Earned Income Tax Credits. If you owe taxes, the EITC reduces the amount of taxes you might owe and may allow you a refund when you file your taxes. If you do not owe taxes, the EITC tax credit will provide you with a tax refund when you file your taxes. Learn more at
