If you qualify for CalEITC and have a child under the age of 6, you may also qualify for a refundable tax credit of up to $1,117 through the Young Child Tax Credit (YCTC)! If you qualify, you may see a reduced tax bill or a bigger refund.
Filing your state tax return is required to claim both the CalEITC and the YCTC. Tax filers with an ITIN – Individual Tax Identification Number – including undocumented workers, may now qualify for the CalEITC and the Young Child Tax Credit (YCTC).
*Qualifying children must be under 6 years of age as of December 31, 2023.
