Support the IRS EITC Awareness Day Thunderclap

EITC Awareness Day Thunderclap

The IRS office of Indian Tribal Governments invites you to join us in raising awareness of the Earned Income Tax Credit by signing up for our EITC Awareness Day Thunderclap before January 26 (by noon). Our Native American communities are especially at risk for overlooking this important tax credit.

Thunderclap is a crowd speaking social media platform that allows people to support a tweet, Facebook or Tumblr message all at the same time. Think of it as a massive flash mob on social media. It’s completely safe and will automatically post one message on your own social media account. Here’s how to sign up for the EITC Awareness Day Thunderclap:

    1. Follow this link:
    2. Click on “Support with” … Facebook, Facebook Page, Twitter or Tumblr
    3. Authorize Thunderclap to post this one-time message to your social media platform by clicking on the “Add My Support” tab. You’ll need to input your social media username and password. 

A message will be set to go out on EITC Awareness Day, Friday, January 26, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. EST. It will blast out automatically to each organization and person who backed the cause, which in turn reaches every one of their friends, followers and beyond…all at the same time. Thunderclap will amplify the message throughout all social media. Please consider participating.


We will flood Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr with this message:


“On #EITCAwarenessDay, help #IRS put money in the pockets of working Americans who are eligible.


The link in the message takes you to the IRS EITC resources webpage. It couldn’t be any easier to get the word out about this important tax credit. The more people who sign up, the louder our Thunderclap will be.


IRS will also issue several EITC news releases aimed at working grandparents, Tribal and rural communities, and military families. These news releases will be available at as part of EITC Awareness. Thank you for your consideration and continued partnership.
