Tax Credits and Public Benefits Eligibility

Many eligible taxpayers do not take advantage of the various tax credit and income deduction programs available for fear of losing their public benefits, such as TANF, food stamps, and SSI. The resources in this section provide general information about how the EITC and other tax credit programs impact eligibility for other types of federal assistance.
