Earned Income Credit EIC Refund
The Earned Income Credit, or EIC, is a credit that is income based and is initiated by filing Maryland income taxes by April 15th of every year. There is a regular State EIC and a Refundable EIC component. If the taxpayer qualifies for the Refundable EIC from the State of Maryland then they will receive an additional payment from Montgomery County. Recipients will get an additional 95% of the State Refundable EIC amount from the County for the tax year 2014. For example, if the State refunds $100 the County will add an additional $95. Both refund checks are mailed separately by the State of Maryland. Starting in tax year 2015, the County match will be 100%.

Questions regarding eligibility for either the State or Montgomery County EIC must be addressed to the State of Maryland Office of the Comptroller at 410.260.7980. Additional information can be obtained by clicking on the State of Maryland and IRS website links below.
