Earned Income Tax Credit
What is the Earned Income Credit?
The EIC (also known as EITC, earned income tax credit) is a benefit for certain people who work and have low to moderate wages. A tax credit means more money in your pocket. It reduces the amount of tax you owe and may also give you a refund.
Who’s eligible for the Credit?
There are several filing criteria, but the most important is… You must have earned income from working for someone else or running or operating a farm or business. A person can also have a qualifying child.
How do I file?
The Earned Income Tax Credit is a line item on the federal income tax return forms (1040, 1040A, 1040EZ). To determine if an individual qualifies, he or she must complete and file a federal return.
If the individual has a qualifying child he/she must file a federal income tax return and attach Schedule EIC.
as a side note… individuals earning less than $9750/year (single) are not required to file a return, however the individual might qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit and might choose to file anyway.
