Newsroom 2007 Earned Income Tax Credit for Families

Federal and state tax credits such as Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) can put thousands of dollars in the pockets of families and working individuals with children to help them pay for child care and other expenses.

The Kansas Earned Income Tax Credit is 15% of the federal Earned Income Tax Credit.  It is used to lower any state income tax owed or, if the credit is larger than what is owed in state taxes, a refund check is mailed to the taxpayer. 

Individuals are encouraged to request information regarding eligibility for Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit from their tax preparer.
