If you are eligible for Earned Income Credit, or EIC, it is calculated automatically in the program as you enter your tax information.
There are certain limitations for eligibility.
The earned income tax credit can be a great benefit for workers with low incomes. This tax break returns to qualified individuals a portion of the taxes they paid. It even can produce a tax refund for eligible filers who had no tax liability.
You can find the amount of Earned Income Credit received within the "Summary" page. Once within the "Summary" page, please click "Show Details" next to "Payments". You will see "Earned Income Credit" and the amount received to the right.
