The EITC is the largest, federal refundable tax credit for low to moderate-income workers.Congress enacted it in 1975, in part to offset social security taxes and provide an incentive to work.
Last year, 25 million eligible workers and families received about $61 billion in EITC. The average EITC amount was $2,504. The EITC is as much as $6,557 for a family with three or more children, for tax year 2019. There is a smaller EITC for those with fewer than three children or taxpayers who do not have a qualifying child. EITC can be the largest single payment a taxpayer receives during the year – it canequal a few months’ wages.
EITC and the refundable portion of the Child Tax Credit lift over 10 million people outof poverty annually – over half are children. Four out of five eligible taxpayers receive EITC. One in five eligible taxpayers are not receiving this valuable credit and possibly other credits, as well. Almost a third will become eligible for the first time on their 2019 tax return, due to changes in marital, parental or financial status.

Our mission is to provide free assistance to veterans who are navigating pending criminal cases
The Community Veteran Justice Project (CVJP) is dedicated to ensuring current and former military service members receive the information, support, and services they need to use California’s Veteran Statutes to improve their lives.
CVJP provides specific services, policy advocacy, and community education to assist justice-involved service members/veterans with obtaining alternative sentencing for some felonies, and diversion for misdemeanor cases. This can result in treatment rather than incarceration, some cases being dismissed, and records being sealed.
