Why don't I qualify for EIC?
The most common reasons why people don't qualify for the EIC are:
- Their AGI, earned income, and/or investment income is too high;
- They have no earned income;
- They're using Married Filing Separately;
- Their dependent doesn't meet the qualifying child criteria (if claiming one);
- They're too young or too old (if not claiming a qualifying child).
There's a bunch of other qualifications that must be met. See the full list.
