Earned Income Credit (EIC)

Calculating the Tax Credit

Schedule EIC and EIC Worksheets

If the taxpayer has at least one qualifying child, complete Schedule EIC, Earned Income Credit Qualifying Child Information, and attach it to the tax return. Taxpayers with no children make a direct entry on the EIC line.

The software will print Schedule EIC to be attached to the taxpayer's copy of the return.

Do not attach the worksheets to the return. Give all the worksheets to the taxpayers with their copy of the return.
