I do not have a qualifying child, how did I get EIC?

You do not have to have a qualifying child to get the Earned Income Credit (EIC).

  • You may be eligible for EIC if both your earned income and Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) do not exceed $14,820 ($20,330 if filing jointly);
  • You (or your jointly filing spouse) must have been born on or after January 1, 1950; and
  • You (or your jointly filing spouse) must have been born on or before December 31, 1990; and
  • You (and your jointly filing spouse) cannot be claimed as a qualifying child or dependent on anyone else's return.
