The Earned Income Credit 2019, 2020 - Valuable Tax Credit for Americans

 Tol Bayo

Traverse City, MI - Without doubt, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is the most valuable credit for working parents with a low to moderate income. It offers the potential to lower their tax bill beyond $0 so they can get a refund from the IRS. In a new post, Efile Tax Advisor offers all the information taxpayers need to understand how the EITC works. Taxpayers will find out what they need to qualify for the EITC and exactly how to claim it should they qualify.

To claim the EITC, taxpayers must first earn some form of income. The earned income must be either equal to or below $54,884 for the tax filing season they are applying for. They must also file a federal tax return regardless of whether they pay any taxes or not. Taxpayers do not need to have a qualifying child or dependent to claim the EITC.

Taxpayers who qualify to claim the EITC can do so either as a single taxpayer or married but filing jointly. When claiming the EITC, anyone mentioned as a dependent or qualifying child must have a separate social security number and this must be stated. And each qualifying child can only be claimed on a single Federal tax return per year.

There are free tax filing services available to people who would like to claim the Earned Income Credit. Efile Tax Advisor recommends using The TurboTax Free File feature as it is easy to use. It will only ask some basic questions like the total earned income, number of children or dependents and a few lifestyle questions. The site also recommends using any of the IRS volunteer programs across the country as they also offer free tax help.
