If you are counting your income up for the earned income credit, do you count unemployment benefits?

Oh, and on a side note, you also have to claim the federal stimulus check you got earlier in the year also.

Yes, but if you qualify for the additional child tax credit your UE does not count, because it wasn't an "earned" income.

You have to count it period.  She's saying you may not get additional child benefits because it wasn't an earned income.  I am filing and have 3 kids and had no taxes taken out the entire time and am still getting back quite a bit through my EIC
