2019 – 2020 Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Qualification and Income Thresholds

Below are the EITC tables for the past few years. These are adjusted annually in line with inflation and other government mandates. The EITC supplements the wages of low income workers, and especially working mothers, lifting more children out of poverty than any other single federal program. Nearly 25 million tax returns claimed the earned income tax credit according to IRS data.

6. Phaseout Amount When Credit Ends

How to read the EITC tables: The maximum earned income credit allowed/payable for the given tax year is shown in line 1. To start claiming this credit you must have at least $1 of earned income, with line 2 showing the minimum amount of earned income required to get the maximum earned income tax credit.

The amount of credit you receive or qualify for varies based on income and number of children so will differ from person to person. Earned income includes all the taxable income such as Wages, salaries, and tips, certain disability benefits and self-employment earnings.

The “Phaseout Threshold Amount Begins“ (lines 3 and 5 depending on filing status) and “Phaseout Amount When Credit Ends” (lines 4 and 6 depending on filing status) are the adjusted gross income (AGI) ranges from where the EITC begins to phase out to where it reaches $0, or the income at or above which no credit is allowed.

Or said another way you need to earn between $1 and the amounts in line 4 or 6 (based on filing status) to get at least some of the EIC. If your income is between lines 3 and 4 (single filer) or lines 5 and 6 (married) then you get the FULL EIC for the year.

Examples on figuring the EITC from the tables above: 

Scenario 1: Sara has an earned income of $1,200 for the year – Sara would be entitled to a partial credit since she her earned income is less than the “Earned Income required to get the maximum credit (lower limit)” per line 2. The minimum amount of earnings to get a partial credit is $1. The amount of credit would vary based on the number of qualifying children.

Scenario 2: Megan has 1 child and an earned income of 14,000 for the year – Megan is entitled to the full EIC credit for a single filer with 2 children since her earned income is above the “Earned Income required to get the maximum credit (lower limit” on line 2) but below the “Starting Threshold Phaseout Amount” on line 3.

Scenario 3:  Joe and Mary have an earned income of $45,000 and 2 children – Joe and Mary would be entitled to a partial EIC credit for a married couple with 2 children since their earned income is above the “Starting Threshold Phaseout Amount (Married Filing Jointly)” on line 5 but below the “Completed Phaseout Amount (Married Filing Jointly)” on line 6.

Scenario 4: Kobe and Lina have earned income of $120,000 for the year and 3 children – They would not be entitled to the credit at all since their earned income is above the “Completed Phaseout Amount (Married Filing Jointly)” on line 6

Scenario 5: Your AGI is $47,000, you are single, and you have two qualifying children. You cannot claim the EITC because your AGI is not less than the 2017 completed (maximum) phase out limit. However, if your filing status was married filing jointly, you would be able to claim some of the EITC because your AGI is less than the $50,597 complete phase out limit for 2017. You would however only cannot get a partial EITC because your income is above the $23,930 threshold phase amount for 2017.

See IRS publication 596 or use online tax providers like TurboTax or H&R Block to get a free estimate of the specific credit amount you would be entitled to.

Claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) on your Tax Return

You have to file a tax return with the IRS to claim the EITC, even if you owe no tax or are not required to file. You can get help with figuring the EIC and other qualifying criteria by following  instructions in IRS publication 596 or using online tax filing software which can also help you work through figuring your credit eligibility and determine the amount you would receive.

Based on some reader comments, I also wanted to list some other key criteria in addition to the income qualification levels above, to claim or qualify for the EIC. These are also covered in past year updates provided below.

  • If you are married and claiming the EIC you and your spouse have to submit a joint tax filing, so status cannot be married filing separately. At least one spouse has to have earned income to qualify for the credit
  • The earned income tax credit cannot be claimed if the aggregate amount of certain investment income exceeds $3,450
  • If you live overseas and claim certain foreign earned income and exclusions (via form 2555 services ) you cannot claim the EIC
  • Your child is a qualifying child for the EIC credit if he/she meets these four tests specified by the IRS – Relationship, Age, Residency and Joint Return

[2013 Update] As part of the fiscal cliff deal, the expanded Earned Income Tax credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit were extended for another five years to 2017. The EITC supplements the wages of low income workers, and especially working mothers, lifting more children out of poverty than any other single federal program. Over 6 million families are eligible for the EITC. This expanded EITC keeps the phaseout thresholds for married couples at or above existing levels for single filers. For 2013 the income and credit limits reflect a slight increase over 2012 levels as shown in the table below.

2013 EITC limits
2013 EITC limits (source : IRS.gov)

The “earned income amount” (line 1) is the amount of income (minimum limit) at or above which the maximum amount of the earned income credit (line 2) is allowed. The “threshold phaseout amount (lines 3 and 5 depending on filing status) and “completed phaseout amount” (lines 4 and 6 depending on filing status) are the adjusted gross income (AGI) ranges from where the EITC begins to phase out to where it reaches $0, or the income at or above which no credit is allowed. These ranges change depending on the filing status.  Investment income must also be $3,200 or less for 2013 to claim the credit.

2012 EITC income and credit limits are provided in the update below along with examples of how the EITC works.

Child Tax Credit

The child tax credit maximum for each eligible under-age-17 child will remain at $1,000 for 2013 and will help over 10 million lower income families with 18 million children. The fiscal cliff deal also contains provisions to make the 2013 Child Tax Credit available to more working families that previously could not benefit from it by raising income qualification thresholds (which are not indexed to inflation).

For 2012, the child tax credit starts phasing out (reducing) for those above a specified modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). For married taxpayers filing a joint return, the phase-out begins at $110,000. For married taxpayers filing a separate return, it begins at $55,000. For all other taxpayers, the phase-out begins at $75,000. The credit is reduced/phased-out by $50 for each $1,000 of income above the above threshold amounts.

In addition, the Child Tax Credit is generally limited by the amount of the income tax you owe as well as any alternative minimum tax (AMT) you owe. Other qualification details for the credit can be found in this article.

___________

[2012 update] The IRS has officially released 2012 tax details and here are the changes to the Earned Income and Child Tax Credits:

– The 2012 Earned Income Tax credit (EITC) changes are shown in the table below: The “earned income amount” (line 1) is the amount of income (minimum limit) at or above which the maximum amount of the earned income credit (line 2) is allowed. The “threshold phaseout amount (lines 3 and 5 depending on filing status) and “completed phaseout amount” (lines 4 and 6 depending on filing status) are the adjusted gross income (AGI) ranges from where the EITC begins to phase out to where it reaches $0, or the income at or above which no credit is allowed. These ranges change depending on the filing status.

Example on figuring the EITC: Your AGI is $43,000, you are single, and you have two qualifying children. You cannot claim the EITC because your AGI is not less than the 2012 completed (maximum) phase out limit of $41,952. However, if your filing status was married filing jointly, you would be able to claim some of the EITC because your AGI is less than $47,162 complete phase out limit. You cannot get the fill EITC because your income is above the $22,300 threshold phase amount. Further examples and details are provided in the previous updates below.

Note: The earned income tax credit is not allowed at all if the aggregate amount of certain investment income exceeds $3,200 for the given tax year.

  1. i eanred a little over 13,000. between workmans comp and ssdi. do i have to file and would i be able tonreceive anything from coranavirus stimulas package?

  2. I am a single mom and made $46,609 in 2018 plus another $4000 or so in Unemployment payments I received for a short time. I have 2 children who live with me full time and will file as a Head Of Household. I don’t receive help from either of their fathers. I have always received the EITC and always get $4k-$6K back on my return. This year it looks like I will need to pay and Im devastated because my income may seem to be a lot but almost $30,000 goes to housing alone not including utilities, insurance, food, car payment etc. I barely make it every month and now the IRS wants more money! Looks like I over earned by $727 acording to the EITC threshold, not including my Unemployment income which Im not sure if that counts as Earned Income as well. If so then I made close to 5K over :( My question is, is there anyway around this regarding deductions? Insurance payments/union dues/etc.? Or no? I cant really afford to pay any extra money out of my paycheck to taxes right now and struggle as it is as a single mom living in Los Angles. I really feel like those limits should be hire in todays world and especially as a single parent. :/

  3. What do the people get if they are on S.S.I. or S.S.I.D. and cannot work even tho it’s considered income?

  4. First year filing taxes and I have a dependent should I wait till the 15th to file or go ahead and file now?

  5. Ok I made 4500 this year with 3 dependts how much should I be getting back

  6. Curious when 17 year olds became adults, they won’t be 18 until July 29th 2018 and are still in high school..Can’t believe we get no credit at all

    1. At the end of the filing year, your child was younger than you (or your spouse if you file a joint return) and younger than 19……

      At the end of the filing year, your child was younger than you (or your spouse if you file a joint return) younger than 24 and a full-time student

  7. what is the maximum amount of refund I can receive back wen filing head of household and claiming two children?

  8. When and where will the numbers for “2018 Earned Income Tax Credit (for Returns Filed in 2019)” be announced? If the numbers depend on CPI, which CPI version and which months are used? Is EITC expected to continue in roughly its current form? I need to tax plan.

  9. How much would I have to make to be able to claim my son?
    I worked half a year but who filed my taxes said I did not make enough to claim him because I hadnt made enough money…

    1. If you made at least $2500 you are eligible for some of the child tax credit, there’s no such thing as not “making enough to CLAIM HIM” unless you have a custody agreement with a clause indicating right to claim, medical responsibility ect. If that’s not the case and you have full right to claim him then your tax preparer is not trustworthy. I suggest going on turbo tax and seeing what they calculate your return to be before letting anyone submit your file on the 28th.

    1. It depends HOW MUCH over $2000 you made. You have to make a minimum of $2500 for the year to be eligible for ANY of the child tax credit on your 3 kids, if you did make at least 2500 you will probably get a credit of 1900 for each child. To get Max EIC you need to make a min. Of 14,320 (since you have three children). So it just depends… If you made less than 2500 you won’t get much back in credits… Just a very small EIC portion if any. You will get most of what you paid in however which I’m guessing is a couple hundred or less.

  10. I am 74 and have a total with social security and pension of $1,620/month. I am also an amputee (below the knee). I receive a small amount of food stamps, I pay for my medicare. I have no income other than SS and my pension. Do you think I would be eligible for the earned income tax credit?

  11. Is the EIC amount added to your original tax return amount? so lets say while doing my taxes it said i was getting 4,000 back and when you see if you qualify for EIC it says you qualify for 3,000 do that mean if they approve is the grand total will be 7000?? This is my first year really having a dependent so I am curious??/? Please help

    1. Yes EIC is a tax credit – so you get back whatever your qualify for (based on income & dependents). Not tied to your other deductions or refunds. That’s what makes this such a popular credit.

  12. I have four kids filed a 1099 due to self contract I only brought in 10,000 and they said. I am only getting 4900 back. This. Can’t be right filing three got me 9,000 back. I just. Don’t understand

    1. Depending on your income. It needs to be at least around 14,000- 18,500 to get max amount back
      .
      I know for my income matters
      You have o be in the middle to get max
      Examples of mine
      2013 income was 11,000 yrly got 5,000 w 3 UN erarned income cred
      2014 was 13,000 yrly income got 6k for 3 UN earned income cred.
      2015 income was 14,050 yrly icome got 8,100 back
      2016 income was 18,500 it’ll be 8,500 so to get about the max amount back it’s between 14,000-19,000 . Hop this helps.

    2. 1099 is “supplemental pay” and rightfully taxed at 25%… Since when you contracted the work you did not pay taxes out of the wages as you received them, you file a 1099 because you have not yet paid taxes on that income through i9 status(since an I-9 was not submitted to the IRS with the witholdings allocated just like an employer would). Which means you would OWE IN taxes on that amount. Now, since you fall below the earned income threshold you qualify for the EIC which is deductable meaning the amount you owed in got subtracted from that credit. It looks like the 4000$ you are getting back is the minimum tax credit for each qualifying child(the EIC stops increasing after child 3, it’s the same whether you have 3 or 30 qualifying children). If you did not have children or low enough income to qualify for the EIC credit you would have been paying in this year. Last year you probably had I-9 status from an employer and had a W-2 and paid in which would qualify you to get most of what you paid in(if you did not claim kids under exemptions on your I-9) in addition to getting the full credits on both EIC and Child tax credit.

  13. Single mom as of last May, income of $5400 this year. What do I qualify for? Her dad only helped with child support for 2 1/2 months right after the divorce… I need to figure out everything I qualify for ahead of time as I’m trying to get us in our own place by the end of the school year & this would be our life saver!
    Thanks!! :)

  14. i am a single mother and made about 30,000 and have 2 children not sure if i would get full child tax credit for both?

    1. Joan read the article ontop that says 2017,2016 and Past Earned Income Tax credit (EITC) Qualification and Income Thresholds by Andy (Author) He really gave a good breakdown based your income.

      .EITC is not a 1 answer soln it is based on so many factors..that’s why I use Tax professionals like H&R block to figure everything out for me especially with this whole PATH situation going on this yr.. that way you can get the most out of it

  15. single father I made about 30,000 this year have 1 child. would get full child tax credit not sure…

    1. I’m a single mother, I made 29,000 and I’m getting 1,923 child tax credit so I would say “yep, just about” but you won’t make as much EIC as you are used to from previous years

  16. If I have a child who is 18 and still goes to school and he receives long term disability and I care for him can I claim his disability as earned income?

    1. Yes, Per the IRS Earned income includes all the taxable income and wages you get from working or from certain disability payments. This includes Long-term disability benefits received prior to minimum retirement age.

  17. im 24 have one child born 10/13/14 an made about 8500 this year what would i be qualify for?

  18. Can I file my 2015 taxes? My files status is single my wages were $506 and I have no dependents.

  19. I am disabled also I have a son who is 22 and disabled. My husband was self employed and he made 10,212. Do we have to file? Will it affect my son’s and my ssi benefits? How much would we get back if we do have to file?

  20. I am a 24 year old single mom to my 2 year old. This year I have not worked so I earned $0 but I am attending school part time without fafsa. Do I qualify for anything?

  21. My name is Ishmael, and I only made 1,400 this year. I own no property, have no child and not filing head of house hold. And it’s showing that l’ m receiving only 42.00 dollars. Question: is there anything I could do legally to increase my tax return?

  22. Hi I made 26000 and I’m head of house my wife dosent work and I have 2 month old baby do I get the full credit for my baby

  23. I am a single father with 1 child and I am a college student, I made 1,290.00 in 2014, can I get the EITC?

  24. I began filing my husbands taxes. His federal return will be close to 9000. 2000 of that is from the CTC four our 2 children. My husband owes some back child support. My question is….can child support take the $2000 CTC that is supposed to be for our children. Is there something we can do to make sure we at least get that from our return?

    1. Are you filing a joint return? If you fill out an injured spouse form you can still get your portion of the return, ctc and eitc

  25. My sister had no income last year, has filed for disability but has not gotten it yet. Turbotax will not let her claim her dependent son, and it shows that she owes 500$ , how can this happen?

  26. My daughter is 17 and still a full time student in high school this year. Why does my tax refund info state that I can not receive the standard deduction for her? I’ve paid just as much money on her and for her as previous years. I do not understand why this year is different. Can someone please explain it to me? I’d really appreciate any input. Thanks!

      1. That’s untrue. If she is listed a dependent on your return you will get the personal exemption for her (the standard deduction is based on whether or not you are single, married, HOH, etc). If your daughter was a full time student (up to age 24) then you can still claim Head of Household. The reason the child tax credit stops at age 17 is because you get the credit for 18 years….the first year the child is on this earth counts as year 1 even tho they are not yet 1 year old.

  27. I am a single mother of a two year old. Moved a couple times in 2014 and lived in a total of three states only working in one for a total of $206.15. What credits do I qualify for? I also have a baby on the way. When I attempted to get an estimate both on TurboTax and h&r block the refund that I would be getting back is approximately $77 with the only credit received is the eic. However when I contacted h&r block via phone the lady said I would qualify for the child tax credit as well. Was I misinformed? Just trying to make the most of my refund. From what I had been told by several people was to expect approximately $1000. I’ve been getting discouraged as I have not ever filed taxes before.

      1. What I just read that means you need to better your life and stop whoring it up and not worry about what help you can get from the state I am a father of 2 and married . I am the only one that works and I make it. Get a job and stop asking for help.. I can’t help the helpless

        1. are you serious? Did you really just contradict your self. You are married and have 2 children. What does your wife do all day? Please don’t take be a stay at home mother because I’ve worked, went to school, and supported 2 children on my own. Don’t judge someone you don’t know. All she asked was if what she has been told was correct or not. She didn’t ask for some uneducated, ill mannered, boy to give his personal opinion. And to top it off. You gave some lame @$$ opinion on a tax web site… I mean really how dumb can you possibly be? I don’t know if I feel more sorry for your wife or your kids. Your wife for actually looking at you and thinking gee he looks like husband/dad material. or your kids who really have no control over the life you give them and the ignorance you have shown here.

        2. What part of anything that this young woman asked in this script above would make you come back with your opinion that she should better her life and then you include that she should stop whoring!! How dare you! Not once was she crying about her childrens father being a deadbeat or did she express any hardship or complain poor pitty me, she simply stated shes trying to make the most of her return and even though she had made a few moves thruout the year that does not define her as we do not know all the factors in her life. Obvisly your researching this same material most likley to do the same as this young lady! Very sloppy and stupid reaction on your part Matt because if you reread your very own words as you call a woman a whore you also state that your a father of two and married, that your the only one that works and your suggesting that Corissa needs to get a job! Now first you should be ashamed because your wife the one thats raising your two children dosent in fact have a job outside the home so in absoutley no way is she any different than the lady your calling a whore, and shame on you again because its a proven fact that a woman raising children as a stay at home mother put in 90 hours a week minumum!! Bet you feel a tad silly there Mr.Matt and can i ask for the record where you put in your hours and what dumbass employees your foul self? You cant be too important at all if you publicly speak to women like that and what kind of father are you? Stay close to your children and walk a new path, people like you are worthless and how dare you discourage or try to intimidate this young mother. Straight disgust for you and Ms.Corissa I hope you are blessed with a decent tax return, I commend you for taking care of your responsibilities and im sure your a wonderful mommy. I apoligize for this mans unnessecary vulgar comment and hopefully you have a better and blessed day, I will never understand or stand for lowlife humans who prey on hurting other people. Last thought is for you Matt, god forbid that one day you could have a lifechanging event occur in your immediate family and possibly a relative whos life hangs in the balance, your loved one may need a rare one in a billion SOMETHING….and the one person who may possibly save your loved ones life could be the woman/mother that you had nothing better to do than insult and call a whore. Take a lesson from this and i pray that you dont get slick out the mouth like this face to face with people because if you do seek god!! Where im from scum like you get dealt wit for way less and honey your day will come. You should be ashamed!!

      2. Don’t listen to Matt he is IGNORANT, and SELFISH. Doesn’t understand how hard real life is. I am also a single mother of a 6 year old and 25. I understand what you are going threw and it is hard to find the right information. I am too looking for where to go to fill taxes even tho this pass year I haven’t been able to work, and put down for a child care, which is more then what I made, even with a bite of help it’s still to much. Sometimes the best thing to do is to keep looking at different places. I’ve gone to two different location and was told I am unable to claim my son. One one said I could. Ask family and or friends who has done it, they could help you.

        Matt for your information. Child Care where I am from cost $300 a week for 12 hours, which is two hours for four days and four hours for one day. Now if you multiply $300 by 4 it’s 1,200. Maybe that’s why you are the only working cause it’s only $1,200 a month for one child and $1,400 for two children. Even with help it would go down to $900 a month for one child and $1,100 for two children. Stop being closed minded and open your eyes to the reality and the truth of life.

  29. Hi I am trying to file online and my income was 7600.00 for the year and I have a 12 and 7 year old. I am technically married but have been separated for 6 years, for which 4 of those years he was incarcerated in a different state and he lives in a different state currently and hasn’t even seem the kids or myself for 6 years. I have a boyfriend and have lived with him for 4 years but I haven’t had the money to finish the divorce that I filed and I was unable to get my exes signature so they dismissed it in court and now I have to start over which I’m hoping to pay for with my refund. Anyway, my kids have lived with me full time and I want to know if I can file single, turbotax put that status in for me and I would get the eic, but I’m afraid I will get audited if I don’t file married filing seperate because my bf who lives with me is claiming our 3rd child we have together who is 3 years old and he’s claiming head of household. What should I claim? The difference in refund is so large I don’t want to claim married filing seperate but don’t know if I can claim head of household bc my bf is in the same household and I would think filing single is best but being technically married I would get an audit, is there a law saying anything about being seperate for so long would allow it? Ugh help me lol

    1. I just wanted to add that my ex does not pay child support and I have court order for custody for my 12 and 7 year old as well.

  30. I made 21000 this year, would I be eligible for child tax credit and the eic? I have 4 kids all under the age 10.

  31. I owe state taxes of $1,460.00 dollars and have 2 children ages 13 yrs. and 15 yrs. and was to supposedly was to receive $7,100 back which would be my refund, would that eliminate me from getting the EIC or additional child tax credits?

  32. My son is 18 yrs old and he’s in the 12 grade. Would I get earn full income credit. What benifits would he be intiled too. He made 3440.

  33. Hi,
    So on my W-2, the box that states Federal income tax withheld reads 1391.62. I am a single mother with one child and also filed as head of household. It did also mention the EITC as I was going through. Im concerned because my federal tax return states that Ill be getting upwards of 5,000 dollars. Is this even possible? Was there some error? Im afraid to get that money, and have them reclaim it later for an error I made.

    1. There’s no error, you are entitled to the EIC and since they took out do much Federal Taxes, they owe you
