What is a Workfare payment?

Workfare payments come from state or local agencies that administer public assistance programs funded under the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program.

Even though they are provided in exchange for certain types of work, Workfare payments are nontaxable income and aren’t considered earned income for the Earned Income Credit (EIC).
