CTC and EITC filing resources

Vermont’s Child Tax Credit provides $1,000 per child under six to families with less than $125,000 in income—or no income at all. Vermont’s Earned Income Tax Credit is 38 percent of what filers receive from the federal EITC, which varies by household earnings and number of children. Check out the EITC estimator to see how much you qualify for.

Starting in 2023, the Vermont CTC and EITC are available to all state residents, and do not require a social security number or individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN).
