New Jersey Earned Income Tax Credit We envision building a New Jersey where everyone can afford life's basic needs.NJEITC is a cash-back tax credit that puts money back into the pockets of working families and individuals, including the self-employed, who earn low- to moderate-income.
Almost 25% of eligible New Jerseyans never apply for NJEITC.
For Tax Year 2020 eligible NJ residents will receive 40% of the federal EITC. This latest increase will put an average of $882 back into taxpayers pockets'.
In addition, we have lowered the age limit to 21.This means almost 60,000 more New Jerseyans could receive this vital lifeline.
Don't shortchange yourself. You worked for it, now get it.
