Staten Island – State Senator Andrew J. Lanza (R-I, Staten Island) reminds Staten Islanders that tomorrow is "EITC Awareness Day".
According to the IRS, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable credit for people who work but do not earn high incomes. It helps eligible taxpayers to lower their taxes or receive refunds. New York State and New York City also have local versions of the EITC.
In spite of the extensive awareness campaigns by the IRS and its partners, millions of taxpayers still do not claim their EITC, according to the IRS.
