Tax/Income

Did you qualify for the EIC and/or the Child Credit? & what is your household income and is that one income or two? Feel free to respond anon. I won't respond to the other income post in my main group b/c I cant respond anon.

We didn't qualify for EIC or Child Credit and our income last year was $181K. We are a 2 income family.

  • Yes. DH was laid off and only worked half the year. We only earned around $14k this year not including unemployment. We got EIC and child tax credit for one of the kids only (other kids aged out). This was only one income obviously.

  • We don't qualify for EITC but we do, i believe, get the child tax credit. I'm not sure cause taxes are DH's department.

  • No we made 50K. I was hoping we would since I got laid off and am on UE (that does not count as earned income), but we still came in too high since I was paid from work until June. The child credit we always get.
