Join us for Awareness Day On Friday, January 27, 2017
Join us in making the 11th annual Awareness Day as successful as last year’s. Last year, we had our first experience using Thunderclap. We had 255 participants with a combined social reach of over 372,000. And, supporters sponsored 241 live events and other activities such as news releases and articles for EITC Awareness Day.
We need your help to capture the attention of those eligible for EITC, the CTC/ACTC and AOTC and motivate them to explore whether they qualify. We also want to lead them to no-cost options for tax return help--volunteer tax assistance and Free File and make sure they get it right.
Join us in getting the word out to those who qualify but don't file a tax return or miss the credits they deserve. Explore our Partner's Outreach Toolkit for ideas and the products you need to get the word out. Or, see our Quick EITC Outreach kit highlighting some ideas and our key products.
There are millions of workers who miss out on the benefits of refundable credits each year either because they are newly qualified or don’t otherwise need to file. That is why this day is so important in reaching the one in five eligible workers who could but do not claim the EITC and those who miss out on the CTC/ACTC and the AOTC.

Awareness Day Vision Statement
EITC Awareness Day is a one-day blitz in mainstream and social media -to reach the broadest possible range of potentially-eligible taxpayers, including taxpayer segments we believe under claim EITC and but also the child tax credit and the refundable part of the CTC, the additional child tax credit (CTC/ACTC), and the American opportunity tax credit (AOTC).
