In accordance with AB 1847, passed by the California legislature last September, employers are required to notify all employees that they may be eligible for the federal and California earned income tax credit (EITC) within one week before or after, or at the same time, that the employer provides an annual wage summary, including, but not limited to, a Form W-2 or a Form 1099, to any employee.

The federal EITC is a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The California EITC is a refundable state income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. 

If you believe that, based on your annual earnings, you may be eligible to receive the earned income tax credit from the federal or state government,  see this notice posted on UC Net.
