Poverty Outcomes in States with Earned Income Tax Credits
This paper contrasts the poverty outcomes in states that have adopted an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) program with those that have not. The models take into consideration the existence of a program, the credit rate expressed as a portion of the federal EITC benefit, and whether or not the program is refundable. The paper also examines the effects of state EITC programs on hours worked for single and married women.
