Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
The Earned Income Tax Credit is a federal and state tax benefit for working individuals and families who earn low-to-moderate incomes in NJ. It is a tax credit that may reduce the amount of taxes you owe, or provide you with a refund, even if you don’t owe any taxes. For tax year 2021, the NJEITC is extended to include people 18 years old and over, as well as those over age 65 without dependents. For more eligibility information visit the NJEITC website

Child Tax Credits
Under the American Rescue Plan of 2021, advance payments of up to half the 2021 Child Tax Credit were sent to eligible taxpayers. If you received advance payments, you can claim the rest of the Child Tax Credit, if eligible, when you file your 2021 tax return. For more information, visit the IRS Child Tax Credit website
