Promote the EITC to Your Residents

Help spread awareness of the EITC, one of the most useful tools in fighting poverty in New Jersey, to ensure that more of our residents become aware of the incredible financial returns that they could be receiving.

The earned income tax credit (EITC) can be one of the most useful tools in fighting poverty in New Jersey. In 2018 nationally, 25 million eligible workers and families received about $63 billion in EITC. The average amount of EITC received nationwide was about $2,488, which can be a significant boost in the annual income of many families.

These returns could be beneficial, but far too many people are not aware of the financial benefits for which they may be eligible. In New Jersey, more than 576,000 received the EITC which brought back more than $1.4 billion.

We hope that you will help to spread awareness of the EITC, in order to ensure that more of our residents become aware of the incredible financial returns that they could be receiving.
