Get Credit for Your Hard Work (2020 Tax Year) (Chinese)

Library: Chinese | Get Credit for Your Hard Work (2020 Tax Year) (Chinese) 低收入工薪納稅人可以享有聯邦退稅優惠.

工薪退稅優惠(EITC) 有助於低收入工作納稅人及家庭在申報聯邦所得稅時得到更多的退稅。這本刊物內容包括EITC(聯邦低收入者工薪退稅優惠)2020年度稅務申報各項指標 (即為納稅人在2021年4月應繳的稅金)。

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) helps low-income, working taxpayers and families get more money back when they file their federal income tax forms. This publication contains EITC guidelines for the 2020 tax year (for taxes due in April 2021).

NOTE: Announced on Dec. 20, a “lookback” provision will allow low-income workers to apply their 2019 earned income to their 2020 tax returns for the purposes of calculating the EITC or Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC). For both these credits, the more you earn (while still remaining below the maximum), the higher your credit. The lookback measure will allow filers to receive a credit in line with their normal earnings level, rather than be penalized with a lower credit on top of reduced 2020 earnings caused by the pandemic. However, taxpayers must actively “opt in” to the lookback provision (it won’t automatically occur).
