Policy Matters Ohio: Refundability Now

ITEP Work in Action

By increasing the income of working people in low-wage jobs, a refundable credit serves as a buffer against poverty, or a pathway out of it. The refundable federal EITC alone helped more than 265,000 Ohioans work their way out of poverty in 2016, according to ITEP estimates.
