Claim Your Credits

Earned Income Tax Credit

EITC can be a significant financial boost to you and your family. To learn more, watch the video or visit www.getyourefundtulsa.org. Then ask your tax preparer whether you qualify or visit www.irs.gov/eitc.

Estimate Your EITC with this tool!

Child Tax Credit

Many families that earned more than $2,500 may be eligible for the CTC — up to $2,000 for each qualifying child younger than 17. Ask your tax preparer or check eligibility here

You must file a tax return to claim these credits, even if you were not required to in the past. Also, by federal law, the IRS cannot issue refunds for tax returns that claim the EITC or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) before mid-March. Even so, taxpayers claiming either credit should file as soon as they have all the documents they need to prepare a complete and accurate return.

Tax Time Savings
