HR 4954: Foster Opportunity EITC Act of 2019

This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to modify earned income tax credit provisions to increase such credit for individuals with no children and extend from 65 to 68 the age limit for such credit. It also lowers the credit eligibility age for individuals with no children and for homeless and qualified foster youth.

The bill also establishes new reporting requirements by state, local, and tribal foster care agencies for youth in foster care.
