Get Credit for Your Hard Work (2020 Tax Year) (Spanish)

Library: Spanish | Get Credit for Your Hard Work (2020 Tax Year) (Spanish) Los contribuyentes activos de bajos ingresos pueden calificar para el Crédito Tributario por Ingreso del Trabajo (EITC). The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) helps low-income working taxpayers and families get more money back when they file their federal income tax return. This publication contains EITC guidelines for the 2020 tax year (for taxes due in April 2021).

NOTE: Announced on Dec. 20, a “lookback” provision will allow low-income workers to apply their 2019 earned income to their 2020 tax returns for the purposes of calculating the EITC or Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC). For both these credits, the more you earn (while still remaining below the maximum), the higher your credit. The lookback measure will allow filers to receive a credit in line with their normal earnings level, rather than be penalized with a lower credit on top of reduced 2020 earnings caused by the pandemic. However, taxpayers must actively “opt in” to the lookback provision (it won’t automatically occur).
