The system is telling me we don't qualify for EIC because our son did not live with us for more than half of the year. That is not correct and conflicts with entered info

If your son was born in 2016 make sure that you answered that he lived with you all year in TurboTax (in the dependent section).  Use the option the Whole Year instead of reporting the number of months that your son was physically living in the home.  Please review the dependent section again to verify that you entered the information about your son accurately.
