Please help First 5 Orange County and Orange County United Way share this information to help put money back in the pockets of hard-working local families!
If a family earned less than $30,000 within the last year, the California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC) may qualify that family for hundreds, and potentially thousands, of dollars in cash back refund. Also, if an Orange County resident worked in 2021 and their household income was less than $58,000, they may qualify for Federal EITC that can increase their refund even more.
Parents with children under age 6 may also qualify for the Young Child Tax Credit — the combination of the CalEITC and Young Child Tax Credit will increase the refund. Workers can file online for free or schedule an appointment for help with tax filing at www.OCFreeTaxPrep.com.
