Earned Income Tax Credit

Earned Income Tax Credit These surveys analyse the geographical location of the recipients of the Earned Income Tax Credit - the US precursor to the UK Working Families Tax Credit. In several cities it is suggested that a local EITC could complement the federal tax credit and provide additional help to working families. For example, New Jersey has recently enacted a refundable state-level tax credit which matches the federal credit at 15%. The Brookings Institution also recommend that cities run education and outreach campaigns, similar to that carried out by Chicago, in order to increase the take up of the EITC. Other useful EITC sites can be found at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities EITC Analyses and the Joint Center for Poverty Research EITC Information Clearinghouse" is published by the The Brookings Institution
