  • go to and click on individual then look for the EIC assistant. It will let you plug in numbers and give you an estimate for EIC if you qualify.

  • My guess is around $27,000. That is what we made last year and we got about $9,500.

  • Are you asking that specific person? My BIL said they got about $10,000 back last year with three kids. But I think they had other tax credits in addition to EIC and the child tax credit.

    I'd estimate their income at about $24,000

  • Is the person single and claiming all 3? There are a lot of factors to include like homeownership, daycare expenses, and education loans.

  • I would not want the government using my money unless they were going to pay me interest
