Does the Earned Income Credit (EIC) increase with each dependent child, or is there a maximum number of dependents I can claim?
The Earned Income Credit (EIC) increases with the first three children you claim. The maximum number of dependents you can claim for earned income credit purposes is three.
You must also meet other requirements related to your adjusted gross income (AGI) to qualify for the EIC. If you’re married filing separately, you can’t claim the EIC.
