The following are the general requirements to claim the credit:
- The child must be under age 19 at the end of the tax year or be a full-time student under age 24 at the end of the tax year. A child who is permanently and totally disabled is a qualified child regardless of age.
- The child will not be a qualifying child if he or she files a joint return, unless the return is filed solely to claim a refund.
- The child must be younger than the taxpayer who is claiming the EIC. This means, for example, that a taxpayer cannot claim the credit for an older brother or sister.
If you have questions related to the EITC and how it might apply to you, a friend, or a family member, please call.
