Welcome to! 

On behalf of the people of Illinois, welcome to the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) website. Here you will find more information about the increased EITC, resources to spread awareness, and instructions on how to apply.

I encourage you to utilize the tools and resources on this website to claim the tax benefits you have earned. I know that by working together, we can boost growth for local communities and support families allowing for a stronger Illinois economy.  

We have provided resources to several groups to help people across Illinois file for the EITC and other credits. The IRS has provided a listing of locations set up by these partners, as well as others. To find a tax assistance program location near you, click here and enter your zip code, or call 1-800-906-9887 or 1-800-829-4059 (TTY).
