The California Earned Income Tax Credit is used effectively to lift communities across California out of poverty. Despite its noted success , there are critical populations who continue to be left behind, one of which are immigrants who file their taxes using an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. These individuals are taxpaying members of our communities who, despite contributing to their local economies, cannot access a critical tool to help work their way out of poverty. AB 1593 extends eligibility of CalEITC to these communities, creating a more inclusive and equitable system.
