Support for low-income, working Californians will continue in 2023 thanks to the payment, which is based on your 2022 tax return.
The California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC) information for 2023 has been made public. Families who meet a number of requirements may be eligible to receive tax credits or even have their tax obligations reduced.
According to an article published by AS on January 09, 2023, you might be qualified for up to $3,417 in cash back or a tax debt reduction. However, this amount is only given to families with the greatest number of children and drastically decreases for those who have no dependents.
You must be at least 18 years old or have a qualifying child, have earned income of at least $1 and not more than $30,000, have a valid Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) for you, your spouse, and any qualifying children, reside in California for more than half of the filing year, and be ineligible to be claimed as a qualifying child of another person in order to qualify for the CalEITC during the tax year.
Contrary to the Golden State Stimulus checks, the CalEITC is a tax credit rather than a direct payment. Instead of being offered as a direct payment like the Golden State Stimulus checks, it is offered as a tax credit that offers either a refund on taxes paid or a deduction on taxes owed.
The total of your California tax payments for that year cannot exceed the maximum tax credit that you may receive. $275 if you don’t have any kids, $1843 if you have one, $3,037 if you have two, and $3417 if you have more than two kids.
