Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Did IRS disallowed the credit for 2014?

There could be several reasons. Do you claim Head of household with income between 10 and 20K? Sometimes switching to single with a dependent not make any difference in tax but will lower the audit chances.

Do you prepare your tax returns yourself? Returns prepared by tax professionals with PTIN are less likely to be audited than self-prepared returns.

Is it possible that somebody else is claiming the child? If more than one people claim the same child for earned income credit or head of household, IRS request verification documents.
