Does Schedule E income for an LLC that is taxed as an S-Corp count towards earned income for the EIC? What about income from a partnership that is taxed as a partnership?

I can't seem to find where to include this but I definitely earn it by working everyday so it seems that both should be included.

Your distributive share from a Sub-S Corporation is not considered earned income. That's because it's considered to be investment income. If you did work for the Sub-S and received compensation, you should have been paid wages, and it should be reported on a W-2.

Partnership K-1 income for business income,  that is subject to Self Employment tax, is considered to be earned income.
