We specialize in:

  • Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC): a refundable credit for low to moderate-income working individuals. The money you get back varies based on income and how many children you have (maximum ~$6,600).
  • Expanded Child Tax Credit: worth $3,600 per child (ages 0-5) and $3,000 per child (ages 6-17). *You may have received the advanced monthly payments (the IRS sent out monthly checks from July 15th - December 15th, 2021 totaling half of the amount of the credit). In order to get the second half, you must file a 2021 tax return! Eligible families who didn't receive the advanced payments for the child tax credit will be able to receive the full amount of the credit when filing a 2021 tax return.
    • To be eligible, the child must live with you and be your dependent. The child needs a social security number. Income limit of $75,000 - $150,000 per household.

Obtaining an ITIN

If you are undocumented but have U.S. citizen kids, new legal changes can help your family. You can apply for an ITIN number that allows you to file tax returns and request significant credits for your kids. StreetCred can help you connect with Greater Boston Legal Services to decide whether this is the right step for you and your family, and to apply for an ITIN should you choose to do so. You can also contact us at 617-414-5170 or email info@mystreetcred.org.
