These credits can bring thousands of extra dollars to individuals and families, but an estimated 20% of people who are eligible for these tax credits fail to claim them every year.  These credits include the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EIC), the Wisconsin Earned Income Tax Credit (EIC), and the Wisconsin Homestead Credit.
