Can I claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) on my California state tax return?Español
No. California does not offer the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). EITC is a refundable federal credit that can reduce the federal tax you owe or result in a refund to you.
To find out if you are eligible to claim EITC on your federal return, you can:
- Go to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website to find out if you qualify for EITC.
- Call the IRS at 800.829.4477 and enter topic 601 when instructed.
