2013 House Bill 4566

Increase EITC

Introduced in the House

April 16, 2013

To increase the state earned income tax credit from an amount equal to 6 percent of the federal EITC, to 11 percent. This is a “refundable” credit for low income workers (meaning that a check is sent to the taxpayer for the balance of the credit exceeding taxes owed).
