Hello

The Earned Income Tax Credit, EITC or EIC, is a benefit for working people with low to moderate income. To qualify, you must meet certain requirements and file a tax return, even if you do not owe any tax or are not required to file.

Unfortunately, you must have earned income from working for someone or from running or owning a business or farm to qualify for Earned Income Credit.
