Earned Income Tax Credit
Claiming your EITC is easy. Just file your federal tax return Form 1040 or 1040A and Schedule EIC. You can still get an EITC refund even if you don’t owe any income tax. The EITC refund is not counted as income when your CalWORKs, CalFresh, or Medi-Cal benefits are figured. Click here for information
