Check your mailbox. If you are one of the 6,239 New York City residents to receive a letter from the New York City Department of Finance about the 2009 Earned Income Tax Credit, reply immediately. You may be eligible to receive up to $5,028 from the IRS. But you must reply and provide the requested information. Follow the instructions in the letter to complete the worksheets or find information on where to get help.
Also, these residents may be eligible for the State and/or City Earned Income Tax Credit for tax year 2009. If New York State determines they qualify for this credit, the State Department of Taxation will mail the New York State and City EITC checks directlty to them with no further paperwork required.
But, hurry, you have until April 15, 2013 to claim the credit.
