Return to credits

Can I claim both the child tax credit and EIC on my return?

Yes. The child tax credit provides taxpayers with dependent children with as much as a $1,000 tax credit per child. The Earned Income Credit (EIC), is a benefit for working people who have low to moderate income. Assuming you meet the requirements for dependent children and income, you are eligible to claim both the child tax credit and the Earned Income Credit (EIC) on your tax return.
