Maryland Earned Income Tax Credit

The State of Maryland offers an additional Earned Income Tax Credit, matched by Montgomery County’s Working Families Income Supplement.

Montgomery County Working Families Income Supplement

The Montgomery County Working Families Income Supplement is a 100% match of the state EITC for eligible county residents. To receive this credit, residents must file a Maryland Tax return.


IMPORTANT!  ITIN taxpayers are now eligible for the MD EITC and County Working Families Income Supplement!

If you file your taxes with an ITIN, you may be eligible for both the Maryland EITC and the Montgomery County Working Families Income Supplement.  All VITA sites serve ITIN taxpayers and can help you receive these valuable credits.  The Community Action Agency's VITA program can help you apply for an ITIN starting in May.
