I did this step by step and I'm still getting rejected. It still telling me I have to fill out form 8862 when I already did online. I'm confused. What may be the problem to this error?? I need help asap
You need to complete Form 8862 and attach it to your tax return if:
Your earned income credit (EIC), child tax credit (CTC)/additional child tax credit (ACTC), credit for other dependents (ODC) or American opportunity credit (AOTC) was reduced or disallowed for any reason other than a math or clerical error.
You meet all the requirements and you want to claim the credit.
To add form 8862:
Log in to your account.
Go to Federal Taxes.
Go to Deductions and Credits.
Scroll down to You and Your Family and select show more.
Go to Earned Income Credit (EIC) and click revisit.
Answer the questions and eventually you'll be asked Do any of these uncommon situations apply? Check the box that says, I/we got a letter/notice from the IRS telling me/us to fill out an 8862 form to claim the Earned Income Credit.
Select Continue and then Done.
On the Since you got an IRS notice, we need to check on a few things screen, select the radio button next to No, none of these apply and I need to fill out the 8862 form.
Answer the remaining questions.
