Your Citizenship

Generally, you must be a citizen or resident of the United States to claim the EITC. Resident aliens are taxed in the same way as U.S. citizens. A U.S. citizen or resident alien is subject to U.S. tax on the person’s worldwide income and must report it on a U.S. income tax return. A resident alien determines filing status, deductions, and credits in the same way as a U.S. citizen.

Were you a U.S. citizen or a resident alien for all of 2018?
