If you have low to moderate income, you might benefit from the earned income tax credit. This credit can lower the tax you owe or result in a refund.
- You must have earned income of $55,952 or less.
- You must file a federal tax return claiming the credit even if no tax is due and filing a return is not otherwise required.
- Review your EITC eligibility if your household income or family situation has changed.
Use the EITC Assistant on IRS.gov to help you figure out if you qualify.
