One more thing – if you're not claiming a qualifying child:
You (or your jointly filing spouse) must have been born on or after January 1, 1954; and
You (or your jointly filing spouse) must have been born on or before December 31, 1993; and
You (and your jointly filing spouse) cannot be claimed as a qualifying child or dependent on anyone else's return.
Phew! Got all that? Fortunately, TurboTax handles the behind-the-scenes calculations so you don't have to.
To visit the EIC section, search for EIC in your TurboTax program and then select the "Jump to" link in your search results. However, don't do this until after you've entered all your income and personal information – otherwise you'll get an incorrect EIC calculation.
