The Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit are two of the nation's largest anti-poverty programs, helping lift millions of workers and children out of poverty each year. The tax credits are more valuable than ever, ranging from $510 for workers with no dependents to $6,318 for some families. Eligible taxpayers must file a federal income tax return in order to claim the credits.
