ITG FAQ #4 Answer-Can income from nontaxable sources be used to qualify for EITC?

No. In general, EITC can only be computed based on reportable earned income. This means that wages or self-employment earnings from the exercise of treaty-based fishing rights, as well as other types of nontaxable income such as income directly derived from allotted land, may not be considered for purposes of qualifying for EITC.
