Use the EITC Assistant: Earned Income Tax Credit 

This credit phases out depending on qualified dependents and income requirements.


In the event you qualify for the EITC, refunds will be delayed until after February 15, 2017 .   This is due to erroneous credits claimed for unqualified dependents last year as well as other taxpayer fraud.


Be prepared to answer the Due Diligence questions!
