Who Can Claim EITC?

Find out if you are eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit. To get the EITC, you must meet requirements based on your filing status and income.

This tool helps you find out:

  • Your filing status
  • If you have one or more qualifying children
  • If you are eligible
  • The estimated amount of your credit

Modal Help: We provide helpful information by using modals. We show them in blue and a dotted-underline.

Upon completion of the tool, you will have the option to view or print a summary of the information you gave us, your filing status, your income, the number of qualifying children, if any, and an estimate of your Earned Income Tax Credit.

When To Check...

  • You had earned income of $53,505 or less in 2016.

What You Need...

  • Income statements or amount of income for 2016

  • Any adjustments to that income

Note: We use the information you provide to determine if you are eligible for the credit and to estimate the amount. We do not share it. To protect your privacy, we get rid of all your information when you exit this program.
