My tax return keeps getting rejected due to missing or incorrect information on form 8862

If the IRS disallowed your Earned Income Credit (EIC), it's a requirement to File Form 8862 after a disallowance. 

IRS Form 8862Information To Claim Earned Income Credit After Disallowance, is a form which a taxpayer must complete and attach to their federal income tax return if:

  • their Earned Income Credit (EIC) was reduced or disallowed for any reason other than a math or clerical error for a year after 1996, and 
  • they want to take the EIC and meet all the requirements

Please see the following TurboTax guide to filing Form 8862 after a prior disallowance of the EIC:
