This movement has an attainable goal. Together, we can urge our legislators to reinstate and expand the Oklahoma EITC, but it must be a group effort. We want to know about organizations and community events where we can talk about the program or distribute collateral to help grow momentum.View Community Calendar
Benefits of Oklahoma EITC
The state EITC is a tax benefit for working families, which has been proven to lessen the impact of poverty and improve the health and well-being of low-wage families.
BOOST LOCAL ECONOMY
Oklahoma households earning the EITC spend a large portion of their refund on basic needs, boosting the local economy.
The sensible ask of the state legislature to expand the EITC for taxpayers is a nominal request that would prove state dollars at work for Oklahomans
What we’re up against
Lawmakers in 2022 de-coupled the Oklahoma EITC from the federal credit, which means the Oklahoma EITC will lose value over time due to inflation.
The Oklahoma EITC is set at 5% for the federal EITC, making it one of the lowest rates in the country. Expanding the Oklahoma EITC rate to 10% would target tax relief to working Oklahomans.
The EITC provides support to more than 200,000 working families .
