This tax credit is a break for low income workers, but this year many Americans who do not usually qualify will just one time.

Those without children can see up to $1,500, which is three times what it’s usually worth.

This expansion comes under the American Rescue Plan, a $1.9 trillion dollar plan.

Free tax filing options

If you earn up to $21,430 from work and you do not have children, you could claim the tax credit.

Workers ages 19 and older or homeless 18-year-olds who recently left foster care can qualify.

This program is aimed at combating poverty levels in America and was created by President Ford.

It brings over 5 million people above the poverty threshold.
