Monday Map: EITC Recipients by State
October 1, 2012
Today's Monday Map shows the percentage of filers in each state who receive an earned income tax credit (EITC.) This tax credit is targeted towards lower income working people (more on how this works here). Many federal income tax "nonpayers" are EITC recipients (though they may still have some taxable income, the credit they get back exceeds their tax liability.)
