Federal Income Tax Information

Earned Income Credit Information

Programs that provide information and guidance for employers of and/or employees who earn less than a specified amount during the year, regardless of whether it is taxable, and qualify for a credit which allows them to subtract up to $4,008 from their tax liability at the end of the year or obtain a refund. The minimum income amount varies depending on whether the individual has qualifying children (sons, daughters, adopted children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, stepchildren, or eligible foster children who meet age criteria and have lived with individual in the U.S. for a specified period of time) and their number. Eligible foster children may include brothers, sisters, step brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews or children placed by an authorizing placement agency. Also included are organizations that issue the tax credits.

Federal Education Tax Credit Information

Programs that provide information and guidance for eligible individuals who need assistance in determining whether they qualify for the federal Hope Scholarship Credit or the Lifetime Learning Credit, both of which allow individuals to take a tax credit for postsecondary education expenses. Education credits are subtracted from the individual's tax, but are non-refundable, i.e., the credit amount cannot exceed a family's tax liability, and no benefit is provided to families whose incomes are so low that they have no income tax liability.
