If you earned less than $41,646 in 2008, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) could give you a credit of as much as $4,824. Additional credits could pay even more. (Individual credit and refund amounts will vary).

You don’t have to owe federal taxes to receive this credit, but you do have to file your taxes.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) at 1-800-829-1040 provides information on the refundable Federal income tax credit for low income families on their Earned Income Tax Credit website.
