Get the Credit You Deserve — In English, Spanish and Hmong

Each year WCCF updates a one-page brochure that helps educate people about the major refundable tax credits for low-income families — the federal and state Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), the state Homestead Tax Credit, and the federal child tax credit.  Please help us get the flyer into the hands of low-income families who could benefit.

A few years ago, as part of EITC Awareness Day, the Secretaries of the Dept. of Revenue and Dept. of Children and Families encouraged state residents to check their eligibility for tax credits aimed at helping low-income workers and families. Their press release said an estimated 20-25% of WI taxpayers eligible for the EITC do not claim it on their returns.  An even larger percentage of eligible households don’t claim the Homestead credit. 

You can find the updated version of the tax year 2011 flyer on the WI Budget Poject website.  In addition to the English version, you can also get the flyer in Spanish and Hmong
