In the media: First 5 Orange County partners with Orange County United Way on income tax credits

Feb 9, 2021 | Partners & Providers

Orange County United Way is working with First 5 Orange County to reach out to families, especially those with young children, and make them aware of tax credits that could help put money back into their pockets.

For households earning less than $30,000 in 2020, the expanded California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC) may qualify them for hundreds or even thousands of extra dollars in their refund. In addition to CalEITC, they may also be eligible for the Federal EITC if they earn less than $57,000, increasing their refund even more.

If anyone who qualifies for CalEITC has children younger than 6 years of age they may also be eligible for the Young Child Tax Credit (YCTC).
