Question

I have a question regarding head of household EIC — If I file as head of household, can I claim the EIC?

Answer

Yes. If you are eligible to file head of household status, which is defined as a filing status for single or considered unmarried taxpayers who keep up a home for a qualifying person, you can claim the Earned Income Credit (EIC). The only filing status that disqualifies you from being eligible to claim the EIC is married filing separately.
