Definitions: The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) supplements the wages of low-income working families through the federal tax code. A key feature of the EITC is that if the amount of the credit exceeds a family’s income tax liability, they will receive a refund for the difference.

Years are tax years. 

Numbers of claims are in thousands.
