If I didn't claim the Earned Income Credit (EIC) last year, can I file tax Form 1040X and claim it?
To claim the Earned Income Credit (EIC) for last year, you must amend your return by filing tax Form 1040X by the later of these dates:
- Within three years from the date of your original return
- Within two years from the date you paid the tax
Returns filed before the due date — without regard to extensions, such as tax Form 1040X — are considered filed on the due date.
