We created these marketing tools to make it easier for our valued partners - employers, government agencies, non-profits, and tax preparers – to join us in a concerted effort to raise awareness about the New Jersey Earned Income Tax Credit (NJEITC). It is estimated that roughly one-in-four New Jerseyans who qualify for the NJEITC don’t apply for the refund. With New Jersey’s credit increasing to 40 percent of the federal EITC, and the minimum age eligibility expanding from 25 to 21, more money is available to more people than ever before! New Jersey Treasury and the Division of Taxation are committed to increasing awareness to ensure that this money makes it into the pockets of hard-working Garden State residents who earned it. We encourage you to use some or all of these outreach tools to help us meet this goal.
