The majority of refugee families are eligible to claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC). This can result in significant amounts of money into client budgets and back into the local economy.
Refugees have to know about the opportunity and be connected with qualified, FREE filing assistance in order to benefit.
According to national estimates, 20 to 25 percent of eligible workers do not claim the EITC. This means that millions of workers are missing out on the income boost they’ve earned.
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities offers excellent resources to help us promote the opportunity. Click here to learn everything you need to know to help clients file correctly.
Consider supplying key employers with these resources. It will help our clients and their other employees. Just one more benefit for employer partners in hiring refugees in partnership with us!
