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. If the taxpayer qualifies for the EIC from the State of Maryland then they will receive an additional refund from Montgomery County. Recipients will get an additional 72.5% of the State EIC amount from the county. For example, if the State refunds $100 the County will add an additional $72.50. Both refund checks are mailed separately by the State of Maryland.

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 and filing forms can be obtained at the State of Maryland's website. To obtain further information, please visit the IRS web site.
