Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

I made less than 30,000 in 2017 with one qualifying independent. I don't understand why I do not qualify for the earned income credit?

Do you have a profit from self-employment (not just income)?

No Sweetie Jean, I am a travel nurse and actually have W2s but for some reason Turbotax has me listed as self employed.  I contract through agencies so am not self employed and I should not show a profit from that.  I just may have to use another tax application.

We can't review your tax return information in this public forum for security reasons, but please see the FAQ below that contains the qualification requirements for EIC. It contains a link to what earned income is as well as the additional qualification requirements outside of income amount and children: https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3299933
