Non taxable income child support answer

Child support is not income, to the parent receiving it, So, it is also not earned income for purposes of claiming the child tax credit or  earned income credit (EIC).


  And, it i not deductible by the parent paying child support.  Some states (NY in particular) do allow a tax benefit, to the payer.  It that's the case, in your state, it will come up in the state interview.
