Rhode Island used to have an EITC
Rhode Island used to have an EITC equal to 25 percent of the federal credit; however only a portion of the credit was refundable. During the 2006 legislative session, the Rhode Island Legislature successfully expanded the state’s refundable portion of the EITC from 10 percent to 15 percent of the state credit. In February 2011, Senate Bill 0191 was introduced to make the credit completely refundable.
