The Thomas Jefferson Area Earned Income Tax Credit Coalition supports low-income working families in Central Virginia.

The coalition provides free tax preparation assistance and promotes the use of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for eligible taxpayers.

The Earned Income Tax Credit is a refundable federal tax credit for eligible working persons.  For 2013, the maximum credit is $6,044 with three or more qualifying children down to $487 with no qualifying child.  To be eligible for a full or partial Earned Income Tax Credit, the taxpayer must have earned income of at least $1 but less than:

  • $46,227 ($51,567 if Married Filing Jointly) with three or more qualifying children
  • $43,038 ($48,378 if Married Filing Jointly) with two qualifying children
  • $37,870 ($43,210 if Married Filing Jointly) with one qualifying child
  • $14,340 ($19,680 if Married Filing Jointly) with no qualifying child

For 2013, free tax preparation with electronic filing is available at the eleven tax sites for taxpayers who have earned household income of less than $52,000.

New in 2013, individuals or families with a combined income under $58,000 may file their own taxes electronically for free by using the tax preparation software available at http://www.myfreetaxes.com/charlottesville
