New tool shows statewide benefits of Earned Income Tax Credit

The Earned Income Tax Credit helps working families throughout North Carolina. Now, a new tool [1] brings that message home visually.

Using the new interactive map at the NC Policy Watch website [1], you can quickly and easily see which counties benefit the most. With working families struggling to get by, the Earned Income Tax Credit is a powerful tool to put capital back into local communities – and this map shows you just which communities we’re talking about.

If you’re a reporter and want the raw data, we’ve got you covered [2], too. But spend a little time rolling the mouse over that map, and I think you’ll find there’s much to be intrigued by.
