Benefits of the EITC

We estimate that four out of five workers claim the EITC, which means millions of eligible taxpayers are putting EITC dollars to work for them.

As of December 2023, more than 23 million workers and families received about $57 billion in EITC. The average amount of EITC received nationwide in tax year 2022 was about $2,541. 

However, there are still millions of people not taking advantage of this valuable credit. Help us reach the workers who qualify but miss out on thousands of dollars every year without the EITC. Educate them about the credit and motivate them to join the four out of five people who file and claim the credit. This includes workers who are: 

  • Living in rural areas
  • Self-employed
  • Receiving certain disability pensions or have children with disabilities  
  • Without a qualifying child
  • Not proficient in English
  • Grandparents raising their grandchildren
  • Recently divorced, unemployed or experienced other changes to their marital, financial or parental status
