By closing several corporate tax loopholes, House Bill 374 would enable the state to invest in an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for Kentucky’s working families. The state EITC would be 7.5 percent of the federal EITC, and would build on the established benefits of the federal credit—helping more than 400,000 working Kentuckians better afford necessities and stimulating local economies.

The following interactive map describes the positive impact a state EITC could have on each Kentucky county. Scrolling over a county on the map shows the number and share of people who would benefit and the additional dollars that would flow into each community.
