Special Method Can Aid Workers Whose Income Dropped

Taxpayers whose incomes dropped in 2017 can choose to figure the credit using their 2016 earned income rather than their 2017 earned income.

To get credit, people must file a tax return, even if they own no tax, even if they normally aren’t required to file.

The IRS expects the earliest EITC related refunds to be in bank accounts starting February 27, 2018.
