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 South Carolinians 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 pay for the basic needs of life.

That’s why Working Hero South Carolina is working to ensure that everyone who’s eligible gets the cash refund they’ve earned and advocating for policies that help all Americans afford their basic needs.
