Double the Earned Income Tax Credit

By encouraging and rewarding work, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) helps lift millions out of poverty. O’Malley will double the EITC, and improve it so that it helps more people—including by lowering the eligibility age to 21 and paying out benefits throughout the year—helping increase the earning power of 13.5 million low-income workers.
