Question

I have a question regarding both State EIC and Federal EIC. If I’m filing returns in more than one state, how is my EIC figured?

Answer

The Earned Income Credit (EIC) is only calculated on your federal return. Some states offer their own version of the credit, which may be based on the federal amount or calculated separately. See the instructions for the state you’re filing.
