What is EITC?

A few of the Southern WV EITC Coalition members

The EITC is a refundable federal income tax credit that provides millions of dollars in assistance to working individuals and families in West Virginia. MountainHeart Community Services, Inc. oversees two of the seven regional coalitions. The EITC is for working families and individuals with low and moderate incomes. It can help reduce tax burdens, boost income and help people move to financial independence.

The Eastern Panhandle EITC Coalition (EP EITC) is a dedicated group of businesses, individuals and community partners whose goal is to establish strategic partnerships that will assist families. We coordinate and offer VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) services, as well as provide financial education and information on EITC (earned income tax credit). Outreach activities include the dissemination of educational and promotional materials, a media campaign and tax assistance.
