California leaves behind an estimated $1 billion a year in unclaimed tax dollars due to residents not taking advantage of the earned income tax credit! CAPSBC is on a mission to help recapture these funds. San Bernardino County residents with an income of $50,000 or less are eligible for free tax assistance, and if you did not take the EITC, you can still file an amendment to your returns to get these dollars.

This EITC was especially designed to assist low income workers with dependents. It’s not just families and individuals losing out when this credit is not taken, these lost dollars fail to stimulate our local, regional and state economies during these difficult economic times. In 2009, a claimant with one qualifying child could receive a maximum credit of $3,043, a claimant with two qualifying children a maximum of $5,028, and a claimant with three or more qualifying children could receive a maximum credit of $5,657.
