If I have self-employment income, can I claim the EIC?
Your self-employment income, minus expenses, counts as earned income for the Earned Income Credit (EIC).
You must claim all deductions allowed and resulting from your business. This determines your net self-employment income.
You must claim all deductions — including depreciation. If you don’t, you might owe a penalty for any misrepresentation you made to obtain other tax benefits. These other benefits include the EIC and Social Security benefits.
