Earned Income Tax Credit
Do you qualify?

Did you know there is a credit you can take on your federal return that is based on your earned income and could provide you with a refundable credit? Well, it's true! The IRS has information on whether you qualify for this federal refundable credit.

What's even better is that Oregon also has an Earned Income Credit available if you qualify to claim the federal EITC. Your Oregon EIC is 8 percent of your federal EITC if you're a full-time resident and 8 percent of your federal EITC multiplied by your Oregon percentage if you're a part-year resident or nonresident. For example: If your federal credit is $400, your Oregon credit is $32 ($400 x 0.08).

*Note to RDPs: Use your "as if" federal return to see if you qualify for the Oregon credit.
