Tax Relief for the Poor.
California recently joined many other states in passing a state-level Earned Income Tax Credit, a tax credit to help the working poor make ends meet. This new tax benefit, and billions in unclaimed federal money, is now available for the first year to low-income earners in California, but few know about it and many are not used to filing taxes. Advocates advise on how to apply for the new tax credits.
