*Refundable earned income tax credits (EITCs) give working households the full value of the credit they earn even if it exceeds their income tax liability.

*Refundable child tax credits are fully available to families with little or no earnings in a year. For details, see appendices in “States Can Enact or Expand Child Tax Credits and Earned Income Tax Credits to Build Equitable, Inclusive Communities and Economies.

Note: Arizona’s Child Tax Credit is a one-time only rebate. Some states have specific rules regarding eligibility for these credits.
