Refunds for Working Families

Every year, Oklahomans leave millions of dollars on the table because they don’t claim their Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) when filing taxes. This year, don’t miss out on money that could change your life.

Detra Pennon - OKC Tax Help

“I’m very excited and very happy that I did take the [EITC] when I did, because we all need a little help every now and then. And I think this program is one of those things that can help the community get what it needs.”

What is the Earned Income Tax Credit?

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a federal tax credit for households like yours who generally earn $57,000 or less a year. The amount of your refund increases depending on your number of children and is often between $2,000-$6,000. Oklahomans collected an average credit of $2,577 in 2019.
