West Virginia EITC
The EITC is a refundable federal income tax credit that provides millions of dollars in assistance to working individuals and families in West Virginia. When a return is filed, all tax liability and any setoff must be satisfied first. Then any remaining amount is refunded directly to the taxpayer. The amount of the credit varies with family size and income.
Earned income includes all taxable income gained from working. To qualify for the EITC, a person must work full or part-time and have earned income during the year. If married and filing jointly, at least one spouse must work and have earned income. Learn more about the West Virginia EITC.

KISRA WVIDA Program
IDAs, or Individual Development Accounts, are special matched savings accounts designed to help families and individuals of modest means establish a pattern of regular saving and, ultimately, purchase a "productive asset." A "productive asset" is something of value that is likely to return substantial long-term benefits to its owner-- benefits like security, stability and opportunities for more income. WVIDA program participants may use their savings and match money toward the purchase of a home, small business capitalization or post-secondary education.
