DC Earned Income Tax Coalition

DC EITC Campaign is a coalition of nonprofit, business, community, labor, immigrant, and religious organizations that was created in 2000 to support enactment of a DC Earned Income Tax Credit. The campaign led to the establishment of a DC EITC equal to 10 percent of the federal EITC, which has since been expanded to 25 percent of the federal credit, the campaign's goal. The group also works to ensure that eligible residents have the tax preparation assistance to claim the money they are owed. In 2004, roughly 45,000 EITC claims were filed in the District, infusing more than $20.1 million into the local community.
