THE EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT
The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a federal income tax credit for lowincome workers. The credit reduces the amount of tax an individual owes, and may be returned to the taxpayer in the form of a refund. Some states offer additional forms of EITC. Eligible workers must have an annual income and investment income that falls below a certain level. In tax year 2005, for example, if you are married, have two or more children, and are filing your taxes jointly, your combined annual income must not exceed $37,263. You must have a Social Security Number to receive the EITC. In tax year 2005, a family with two or more children could receive up to a $4,400 refund through the EITC.*

CHECK 21
Check 21 is a federal law that helps banks handle more checks electronically and that makes check processing faster and more efficient. Under this law, a check deposited in a bank is typically ―delivered‖ overnight to the paying bank and deducted from the checkwriter’s account on the next business day. Money may be deducted from your checking account almost immediately.
