Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)

For more information send us an email or phone 619-338-2799

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a program of the Community Action Partnership (CAP) in partnership with United Way of San Diego, the Internal Revenue Service and other community partners. Created in 1975, EITC is a tax credit designed to lift low-income working families and individuals out of poverty. It is considered to be the single most effective anti-poverty strategy. CAP's EITC services are offered through the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) contractors, in each of the six Health and Human Services Agency regions to families and individuals who meet the federal poverty level (FPL) guidelines.

In tax season 2009, over $17.6 million in Federal and State taxes were returned to San Diego communities. Since the campaign began in 2003, more than $57 million in Federal and State taxes have been refunded to San Diego communities.

For more information regarding the EITC program, go to the Internal Revenue Service or the AARP website.
