Heins, University of Minnesota Extension In 2008 Congress made changes through the financial rescue package and the Farm Bill that may increase your refund eligibility and what it can be used for. Even if you didn't have enough work income that requii'es fi ling, you should still file a tax return. You may be due a refund. The, financial rescue package passed by Congress in October 2008 included expanding the Child Tax Credit immediately. The minimum income requirement for this credit has been lowered from $12,050 to $8,500. This means more working .families will be eligible for Child Tax Credit. The Earned Income Credit will increase refund size as well. The 2008 working income levels for eligibility are as follows: A single adult earner household with one child and income up to $33,995 will have a maximum benefit of $2,917. more than one child and income up to $38,646 will have a maximum benefit of $4,824. no children and income up to $12,880 will have a maximum benefit of $438. A married household with one child and income up to $36,995 will have a maximum benefit of $2,917. more than one child and income up to $41,646 will have a maximum benefit of $4,824. no children and income up to $15,880 will'have a maximum benefit of $438. Households planning to use the tax refund money for savings in certain retirement and education saving plans will remain eligible for food support under the 2008 Farm Bill. Formerly these counted as resources in deter- mining eligibility for food stamps. Effective Oct. 1, 2008 the new rule removes this barrier for individuals and families that feared losing this benefit. Now excluded from resource counting for food stamp purposes are retirement accounts with federal tax- preferred status, such as a 401(K) or an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). The two types of education savings accounts that are excluded are 529 Plans and Coverdell education savings accounts. Low to moderate income individu- als and families can increase the money coming to them by seeking out free income tax filing assistance through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites, which open around Feb. 1. Site locations may be obtained by calling First Call for Help at 211 or (800) 543-7709.
