To benefit from Illinois' EITC, taxpayers must include it on their tax returns. It has been estimated that between 10 and 20 percent of eligible taxpayers did not file for the EITC last year. You can help to ensure your employees and constituents can keep more of their hard-earned income this and every tax year, by following these simple steps:

  1. Post the EITC and Free Tax Assistance Programs flyers listed below in your communal areas.
  2. Include information about the EITC in your newsletter and include it in any announcements. Also be sure to include the IRS hotline number (1-800-906-9887) to find Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites across Illinois.
  3. Educate others about the benefit of applying for the EITC.
