EITC: A Tax Credit that Works for Working Families
The Kansas state Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) helps 211,000 working Kansans – including more than 24,000 in Johnson County – make ends meet. In 2012, $8,000,000 was returned to low-income working families in the county, more than half of which had adjusted gross incomes of less than $20,000. EITC is a proven strategy that keeps families working, reduces poverty, and improves outcomes for children.
