Thanks to Mayor Eric Adams, the City Council and New York State, there is a new, expanded earned income tax credit for the first time in 25 years. See if you qualify for cash back!
The EITC is a federal, state, and New York City tax credit for qualifying families, noncustodial parents, and individuals who work full time or part time or are self-employed. On average, most eligible New Yorkers receive $2,400 in combined EITC benefits. The combined credit can be worth up to $11,000.
Thanks to Mayor Adams support, for tax year 2022, the New York City EITC is increasing, shifting from a 5% cap of federal EITC levels to 10% to 30% depending on filers' income. Like the New York State EITC, this credit is based on your recomputed federal adjusted gross income
(FAGI) – a different calculation than used for the federal credit. For more information, visit New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.
