Shouldn't I qualify for earned income credit even if I'm over the limit since I lost a job. Thought that was the new rule passed

No, that rule was not passed.  This year your earned income and Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) must not exceed: 

 

  • $17,640 if you're not claiming a qualifying child ($24,210 if filing jointly).
  • $46,560 if you're claiming one qualifying child ($53,120 if filing jointly).
  • $52,918 if you're claiming two qualifying children ($59,478 if filing jointly).
  • $56,838 if you're claiming three or more qualifying children ($63,398 if filing jointly).

As you enter your information the program will determine if you are eligible for the credit.  To learn more about other requirement to claim the Earned Income Credit see the following TurboTax Help article:

 

What are the qualifications for the Earned Income Credit (EIC or EITC)?
