How you can help increase Rhode Island’s Earned Income Tax Credit!

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a common sense tax break that we can all get behind. Last year, supporters mailed thousands of postcards to members of the Rhode Island General Assembly and convinced state legislators to increase Rhode Island’s Earned Income Tax Credit from 12.5% to 15% beginning tax year 2017! This means 83,000 Rhode Island working families will have more dollars to pay for the basics and also help out local businesses across Rhode Island. Lets keep the momentum going by increasing the state EITC even further.

To learn more about the Earned Income Tax Credit, check out our EITC Guide Page and our EITC fact sheet.
