Free Tax Help Working Families Credit (WFC)

WFC is no longer a one-time credit. Received WFC before? Apply again for tax year 2020.

The WFC Program offers up to $250 a year to families who qualify for the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). With both tax credits, an eligible family can get back thousands of dollars for tax year 2021.

April 15, 2021 is the deadline for the WFC application. If approved, you'll get your WFC refund by September 2021.
