PATRICK-MURRAY ADMINISTRATION DECLARES JANUARY 30th EITC AWARENESS DAY
Federal and state tax credits improve lives of working families
"The federal and state Earned Income Tax Credit is a powerful tool meant to help lift hard working people up," said Lieutenant Governor Murray. "By raising awareness, we hope to empower more Massachusetts residents who qualify to take advantage of this benefit."
A few months ago the Lieutenant Governor recorded a public service announcement about EITC. The Administration also launched a website with information on the federal and state EITC and various state agencies have conducted outreach.
The Commonwealth has partnered with the Internal Revenue Service, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, and a number of community-based organizations from across the Commonwealth to direct low-income residents to the nearest VITA site location.
