Economic Benefits of the Earned Income Tax Credit in Michigan

The Michigan Association of United Ways and the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan commissioned Anderson Economic Group to analyze the economic benefits to local economies of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) in Michigan. This report uses new data to estimate the usage of the EITC among low-income households, and the net economic impact by county due to new spending from EITC refunds.

Michigan adopted a state EITC in 2006 under Public Act 372 of 2006, and modified it since with 2011 PA 38.
