  • § 5828b. Earned income tax credit

    (a) A resident individual or part-year resident individual who is entitled to an earned income tax credit granted under the laws of the United States shall be entitled to a credit against the tax imposed for each year by section 5822 of this title. The credit shall be 36 percent of the earned income tax credit granted to the individual under the laws of the United States, multiplied by the percentage that the individual's earned income that is earned or received during the period of the individual's residency in this State bears to the individual's total earned income.

    (b) The tax credit claimed by a taxpayer under this section shall be deductible from the taxpayer's income tax liability, if any, for the year in which the income is earned. In the event the credit exceeds the amount of the income tax payments due from the taxpayer, the excess of credits over payments due shall be paid to the taxpayer. Any payments due to a taxpayer under this subsection shall not bear interest. (Added 1987, No. 258 (Adj. Sess.), § 1, eff. June 16, 1988; amended 1999, No. 49, § 36, eff.
