You may qualify for tax credit

NT Staff

Gov. Pat Quinn this month encouraged working families across Illinois to apply for Illinois’ Earned Income Tax Credit.

The governor fought for and signed legislation in 2012 that doubled the value of Illinois’ EITC.

In 2013 the credit helped more than 900,000 families receive $160 million in tax relief.

A single mother with one child and earning minimum wage ($12,800 a year) will save $205 on her 2013 state income taxes. A married couple with three children and earning $30,000 a year will save $265 on their 2013 state income taxes. A married couple with three children and earning just over $50,000 could be eligible for up to $5,891 in state and federal tax relief.
