    If your return has been rejected by the IRS because you did not include Form 8862, your have been sent a notice (this will be important shortly).  To produce Form 8862, follow these steps:  

    - Start with this Article ID: SLN12028 on TurboTax.com - http://turbotax.intuit.com/support/go/SLN12028  
    - Stop when you get to the "Tell Us a Little More" screen.  
    - There should be six choices.  You might have picked "None of the above" last time.
    - Select "The IRS sent me a notice that I can claim the EIC only if I file From 8862".
    - Go through the remaining pages as before.
    - On the "Your Earned Income Credit Status" input page click No.
    - Complete the provided Form 8862 as appropriate and click continue.
    - You have now successfully completed the 8862.

    When you e-file and print your return, be sure that Form 8862 has been included.  Now you have submitted your return both with, and without, Form 8862.  If it is rejected, your next move would be to call the IRS and see exactly what is causing the rejection.

      okay forget the links and turbo tax shawn.  try this.  go all the way back to the beginning where you first entered your DEDUCTIONS AND CREDITS.   You are going to want the credits obviously, then skip down to

      YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
          Click  VISIT ALL
           it will ask if you want to work on this section, click YES
      The dependent care credit will come up and ask if you want to work on it, say NO

      Now is where you have to be careful.
      The EIC credit will come up and ask if you want to work on it, click YES
      Answer the Eligibility questions and click continue


      THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!
      the next screen that comes up is the TELL US A LITTLE MORE SCREEN.  

      If your return was rejected bacause you need an 8862, this is where you need to be

      The third box down,  THE IRS TOLD US WA CAN ONLY TAKE THE CREDIT IF WE FILE AN 8862 FORM
      is what needs to be checked.  this will pop up the form and you can fill it in from there and continue on.

      if that was the only problem, your return should go thru this time.

      Good luck and thanks turbo tax for making it soooo very easy to correct this error....

            People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

            1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
            2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
            3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
            4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
            5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
