Can I claim the earned income tax credit if I'm married filing separately?
No. If you are married filing separately, you are unable to claim the earned income tax credit on your return.
However, if you and your spouse didn’t live together for the last six months of the year, you might be able to choose head of household filing status. If you qualify, you’ll be able to claim the Earned Income Credit (EIC).
