Five Ways to Promote the EITC for Awareness Day 

By Janne Huang

Friday, January 26, 2018 marks EITC Awareness Day. On this day, the IRS encourages organizations across the country to bring attention to the EITC by hosting events and engaging media. This is also a time to highlight free tax preparation and other refundable tax credits like the Child Tax Credit, the American Opportunity Tax Credit, and the Premium Tax Credit.

Here’s how you can promote the Earned Income Tax Credit.

1. Post graphics on social media

We’ve created several social media toolkits with images you can share on Facebook and Twitter.

2. Share this EITC video

We made a quick video to explain (in simple terms) what the EITC is, why it matters, and the impact it has on millions of Americans.



3. Join Thunderclap

Thunderclap is a platform that allows you to share a single message in mass. Help spread the word about the EITC by signing up for the IRS’ thunderclap, and your Facebook or Twitter page will automatically post on EITC Awareness Day. Signing up is easy and quick and helps flood social media with outreach.

4. Share these blogs

Share these blogs on Facebook and Twitter or repost to your blog. Let us know if you reblog a post.

5. Provide EITC resources to clients and partners

Distribute outreach materials about the tax credits to families and partner organizations. Help workers learn eligibility requirements and where to find free tax help. Customize posters and flyers to add details about your local VITA site.
