The California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) collaborates each year with CDCR to create awareness about the California Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Young Child Tax Credit, Federal EITC and free tax preparation opportunities. In recent years, FTB has sent brochures and posters to CDCR facilities to provide valuable information to families and friends visiting their incarcerated loved ones. This information encourages families to take advantage of the free tax preparation services and claim valuable cash-back tax credits if they are eligible. This effort is designed to save families money and, in some cases, increase their refund when they file their tax returns.
For more information about valuable, cash-back tax credits and opportunities for free tax preparation assistance all around California, visit www.CalEITC4Me.org
