The Earned Income Tax Credit works by making work pay better. It’s one of the few programs that actually puts money directly back into the pockets of working families who need it most.
The people who earn the EITC are fellow Ohioans who work in areas like health care, agriculture, education, and food services. They’re the people who often work the hardest, yet are struggling to get by.
That’s why Working Hero Ohio is working to expand Ohio’s state EITC to help more working families afford their basic needs, and to ensure that every eligible Ohioan gets the cash refund they’ve earned.
