How can I get earned income credit if I don't have a dependent?

Claiming EITC Without a Qualifying Child

You can claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)  if you don’t claim a qualifying child for the EITC. But, you, or your spouse if you file a joint return, must have worked for someone, or run or own a business or farm AND earned less than $20,430 during 2016.
