The EITC is a common sense tax break that reduces the income tax owed by low-wage working families, allowing them to keep more of their paycheck. Over the last few years, 86,000 Rhode Island taxpayers saw an increase to their state EITC and are set to see another increase for tax year 2017 from 12.5% of the federal credit to 15%! This means Rhode Island working families will have more dollars to pay for the basics. Let’s keep the momentum going by increasing the state EITC even further.

We will be updating our EITC Factsheet soon so check back here for up-to-date information, analysis, and campaign information!
