California and Colorado have expanded their state Earned Income Tax Credits (EITCs) to immigrant workers who file using an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). See blog post by Samantha Waxman, policy analyst at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP), encouraging other states to follow their lead.
Both California and Colorado were awarded funds in 2020 from the State EITC Campaign Fund to expand their state EITCs.
Economic Opportunity Funders and the EITC Funders Network administer and oversee the State EITC Rapid Response, Campaign and Policy Development Fund and the Federal EITC Campaign Fund to advance tax fairness and economic opportunity for low-income workers and families through the promotion, protection and expansion of the federal and state EITCs. The four funds – together known as the EITC Pooled Fund – are guided by an advisory group, supported by five national funders and administered by EOF and the EITC Funders Network in partnership with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and The Hatcher Group.
