Free Tax Help Working Families Credit (WFC)

WFC is no longer a one-time credit. Received WFC before? Apply again for tax year 2019.

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 between $3,700 and $6,800 for tax year 2019.

July 15, 2020 is the deadline for the WFC application. If approved, you'll get your WFC refund between June and December 2020.
