I'm days away from being eligable for the EIC tax break can I amend my refund after my birthday?

In order to qualify for the Earned Income Tax without a qualifying child, you have to be aged between 25 and 64 at the end of the tax year.

If you were under 25 on December 31, 2016, then you do not qualify. So you do not need to amend your return after your birthday.

The good news is that you will qualify next year.
