EITC Notice Requirements
Earned Income Tax Credit Notice Requirements
 
In 2017, the Legislature enacted SB 398 which requires employers to provide written notice to each employee about the state and federal earned income tax credits (EITC) and that the notice be sent annually with the employee’s federal form W-2. Employers must send information by regular or electronic mail to employees about the EITC contemporaneously with the sending of the federal form W-2. This information is also included in the minimum wage poster.
 
Here is template notice language:
 
Employees may be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC or EIC), a benefit for working people with low to moderate income, particularly those with children. EITC reduces the amount of tax owed and may provide a refund.
