Kentuckians should apply for earned income tax credit

Thousands of low- and middle-income Kentuckians are eligible for assistance

As part of National Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Awareness Day, Governor Steve Beshear launched his annual campaign to urge eligible Kentuckians to apply for the tax credit.  The EITC is a refundable federal tax credit for low- and middle-income working individuals and families.

“Nearly half a million low-wage earning Kentucky taxpayers are eligible to receive the EITC and I encourage everyone who is eligible to apply for this credit,” Gov. Beshear said. “Despite being employed, many hardworking Kentuckians and their families face financial struggles and this credit is a valuable resource they can use to help buy food and clothes, pay bills and more.”
