Earned Income Tax Credit

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) helps low- to moderate-income workers and families get a tax break. If you qualify, you can use the credit to reduce the taxes you owe – and maybe increase your refund.

If you qualify for the federal EITC, Oregon can also help with the state Earned Income Credit (EITC). Look here for more information: https://www.oregon.gov/dor/programs/individuals/pages/credits.aspx

The Oregon EITC is a percentage of the federal credit.
