One of rule for Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is “You must be a U.S. citizen or resident alien all year”. What is mean by all year here? I have obtained permanent resident card (green card) around in the middle of last year. Can I consider myself resident alien for the all year of 2015?
Unfortunately, the IRS will not consider you a resident alien all year. All year means from January 1 - December 31. Next year you would qualify for this all year rule.
