Putting money in the pockets of working families and individuals

The California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC) is a cashback state tax credit that puts money back into the pockets of working taxpayers. If you qualify, you may see a reduced tax bill or a bigger refund.

If you earn a low or moderate income, you may be eligible to receive a cash refund or reduce the taxes you owe from either or both the state and federal government. If you qualify, the amount you receive is based on your income and family size.
