Getting Credit

A new push to make sure locals know about various earned income tax credits

There’s a new push to make sure locals know about various earned income tax credits, especially those made to accommodate low-income people.

Three thousand families fail to claim more than $6 million in tax credits in our area each year because they don’t know the credits are available or don’t know how to claim them, according to Santa Cruz County officials. Depending on their income, locals may qualify for up to $13,900 between state and federal credits.

Santa Cruz Community Ventures and Project SCOUT are holding workshops throughout the county this tax season.
