Video: NJPP’s Gordon MacInnes Discusses EITC Increase on NJTV News

Last night’s NJTV News included a report on the boost to New Jersey’s Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), and the importance of getting the word out to eligible working families. NJPP president Gordon MacInnes talked to reporter Brenda Flanagan about how hard it can be to accomplish that goal.

“Getting the word out is tough,” he said. “Getting the assistance is tough.”

MacInnes added that figuring out eligibility can be tough, too. For example, you might qualify if you’re married with three kids and earn more than $52,200. Single with no kids — you could be eligible if you make about $14,600.

“So you have a very complicated process for everybody,” he said.
