It looks like the Iowa Earned Income Credit will not be increasing in 2011 after all. Governor Branstad has vetoed the increase in the EIC. The proposed increase was part of a budget bill passed by the legislature in late June. The proposal would have increased the state EIC to 10% of the federal EIC (up from the current 7%). The governor approved the other tax provisions in the bill — you can click here to read about those provisions.
Radio Iowa has more details on the governor vetoing the increase to the EIC.
