An extensive and growing body of evidence shows that the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) builds greater economic security for working families, incentivizing labor force participation while enhancing health and education outcomes for low- and moderate-income households. Despite its importance and high uptake, the EITC has room for improvement: Roughly one in five eligible workers fail to claim the federal tax credit and improper payments remain elevated, primarily due to complex eligibility rules. More work is needed to modernize this critical support for working families at both the federal and state levels.

Join the Bipartisan Policy Center for a discussion of what’s working– and what could be improved – in federal and state EITC policies with JPMorgan Chase Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon and former House Speaker Paul Ryan.
