May 28, 2020 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. While California has made improvements to the credit since it was established in 2015, one population continues to be excluded: those who file their taxes with a federally assigned Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN). Thank you to the many who already responded to the Action Alert on EITC that we sent out last week. We’re pleased to report that the pending State Senate version of the CalETIC budget item includes ITIN filers with at least one child six years or younger. It’s important to ensure that the budget passes with this in place. If you have not already sent an email, please do so now. We need to keep pressure on the State Senate to keep the ITIN component in the CalETIC item and keep encouraging the Assembly to discuss and insert it in their budget package! Take Action Now!
