North Carolina EITC

NC Justice Center releases a brief on North Carolina’s EITC

883,000 North Carolinians claimed the NC Earned Income Tax Credit in 2010 according to recently available data from NC Department of Revenue. The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is both a federal and a N.C. income tax credit that benefits low-and moderate-income working families. Each year, eligible N.C. workers and their families lose more than $200 million by failing to claim the EITC, money research shows would likely be spent locally on basic necessities.
