The CalEITC (California Earned Income Tax Credit) tackles California’s poverty crisis by providing much needed assistance to working families and individuals struggling to make ends meet. Those who file their taxes with a federally assigned Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) are still excluded from this opportunity. These breadwinners are tax paying members of our communities who, despite contributing to their local economies, cannot access a critical tool to help work their way out of poverty.
