Educate Staff on the Earned Income Tax Credit

BY Linda Couch

Providers can help educate staff on the Earned Income Tax Credit and put more money in their pockets!

Changes Congress made last year to the Earned Income Tax Credit make it more valuable than ever to workers with relatively low earnings.

Aging services staff who qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit should not leave these checks unclaimed. Aging services providers can help educate staff about this potentially valuable tax benefit. If your eligible staff aren’t claiming it, they are leaving money on the table.

The tool kit includes quick facts on the EITC, an EITC calculator, links to basic and detailed EITC overviews, including from the Internal Revenue Service, as well as a short YouTube video, and flyers to help raise awareness among staff.
