CalEITC might also enable you to qualify for the Young Child and Foster Youth tax credits. For the former, you may qualify for up to $1,083 cash back if you had a child under the age of 6 at the end of the tax year. Learn more here.
For Foster Youth tax credits, you may qualify for up to $1,083 cash back if you were in California foster care when age 13 or older. Learn more here.
In addition, a higher educator expense tax deduction means that some educators can deduct more for classroom supplies when they file their 2022 federal returns. Learn more here.
