EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT (EITC) AND CHILD TAX CREDIT PROGRAM
Broward County Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit Program is a special tax benefit for people who work full or part-time, whose income is below established government levels. This credit will reduce the amount of taxes owed, resulting in a rebate (or credit) back to your family.
Your income and family size determine the amount of the credit, as follows:
- Families with children who earned less than $45,060 can get up to $5,891.
- Workers with no children who earn less than $13,980 can get back up to $475.
The EITC can be claimed retroactively back for three (3) years.
Hispanic Unity in collaboration with the Town of Davie Housing and Community Development Department will provide free income tax preparation via the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Residents, earning an income of less than 51,000, seeking EITC or not are encouraged to sign up for the VITA Mobile Unit for free tax preparation. The mobile resource unit will be visiting the following sites in Davie:
