EITC Key Communication Messages

Here are the key messages for the 2015 filing season. This year the messages center on reaching those who are eligible for EITC, encouraging workers to find out if they qualify by using the newly revamped EITC Assistant, leading taxpayers to other resources to determine if they qualify and help prepare their return, and advise them if they get it wrong; it may cost them. Also, we remind those who qualify for EITC to checkout the additional child tax credit and those without a qualifying child that they may qualify for the EITC as well.
