1/31/2014
WASHINGTON – Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew today issued the following statement recognizing Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Awareness Day:
 
“The Earned Income Tax Credit is a valuable program that lifts millions of children and families above the poverty line each year.  As the President emphasized in his State of the Union address, making the EITC available to more low-wage workers without children by raising the maximum credit they can receive is an important part of our effort to restore the middle class.”
