Earned income credit is a federal program to assist low income working adults. Parents with children who qualify for the program receive a tax credit with each paycheck. People without children who qualify (and are over 25) can receive a tax credit with their annual 1040 tax return.
To qualify, all participants must:
|1 qualifying child||39,131||44,651|
|2 qualifying children||44,454||49,974|
|More than 2 children||47,747||53,267|
What to do
If an employee qualifies for earned income credit and has a child, the employer should contact the IRS at 800 829-1040. for information on how to provide the employee a tax credit with their paychecks.
If an employee qualifies, but has no child, the employee should contact the IRS at 800 829-1040. for information on claiming the tax credit at year-end.
