Earned Income Tax Credit Program

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) program is a FREE refundable federal tax program that reduces the amount of income tax owed by low- to moderate-income working individuals and families. This means that for qualifying households with earned income less than $50,000, free tax preparations and E-file assistance are available. Many households will be eligible for an earned income tax credit.


WCAC is a 2014 VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Site for free tax preparation and electronic tax filing (E-File). To learn more about EITC eligibility in Worcester or to make an appointment, please call the WCAC site at 508-754-1176 ext. 234, or any of the other sites at the numbers listed below.
