Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

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

With a combined income, my wife and I are barely over the maximum income. (around $61k). Can we file seperately and both qualify? We have no children or dependants.

When you file married filing separately you are not eligible for earned income credit, so that will not work.  Sorry.

 

 Earned Income Credit—-the rules are back to the “old” rules—

Those under 25 and over 65 without children are not eligible as they were uniquely in 2021.   And you cannot use your income from any earlier tax year to get the EIC for a 2022 return.  There is no “lookback” for 2022.  EIC for 2022 will be based on the income you earned by working in 2022.
