William McBride talked about the earned income tax credit (EITC), and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. He discussed how the EICT works, who gets refunds, the amount of improper payments and what is being done to keep those mistakes from happening.

Michael McKenney was interviewed by phone about a Treasury Department inspector general report that found that roughly 25 percent of earned income tax credits (EITC) should never have been made. The EITC is targeted toward low-income singles and working families.
