The U.S. Treasury Department recently announced it will be initiating a pilot program to compare benefits data from states on earned income tax credit eligibility. The department’s notice indicated that the pilot program will be used to evaluate whether benefits data from states can be used to identify EITC claimants who are ineligible for the credit and eligible individuals who are not claiming the credit. According to the notice, the program will not seek to prevent ineligible individuals from claiming the EITC or file new claims for eligible individuals who are not claiming it.
