2019 EITC Resource - Tax Preparation and the Earned Income Tax Credit

United Way Bay Area (UWBA) created the EITC presentation, Get Your Employees The Tax Refund they Deserve, to help prepare the Bay Area community for the upcoming tax season. This presentation covers the following:

  • Benefits of using free tax preparation sites to file taxes
  • Educates employers about critical tax credits that may be available to their employees
  • Finding a free tax preparation site in your area.

The EITC is a tax benefit for working people who earn lower or moderate incomes. The credit offsets taxes, supplements very low wages, and encourages work.

The EITC can help cover any federal income tax workers may owe at tax time. Besides offsetting taxes, workers earning lower wages may also get cash back through the EITC refund. Eligible workers who claim the EITC on their tax return can receive a refund even if they do not owe income tax. You can learn more about whether your employees qualify for EITC by reviewing the qualifications here
