California continues to offer an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC); cash-back credit that is designed to put money in the pockets of low-income working families and individuals. Claiming this credit is easy. Eligible taxpayers just need to file a state tax return.
Depending on your income, you could receive up to $3,027. If you qualify for the CalEITC and the amount of the credit is greater than the tax you owe, you will receive a refund.
