CONGRATULATIONS… You are correct!!! The EITC is the largest federal support program for low-income individuals and families. It is a refundable credit through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). If you qualify based on your income, even when you have no tax liability, you will receive a tax refund. In most cases, EITC payments will not be used to determine eligibility for Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), food stamps, low-income housing or most Temporary Assistance for Needy Families payments.
