Turbo tax 1040ez A nontaxable housing allowance or the nontaxable rental value of a home is not earned income. Turbo tax 1040ez Also, amounts you received for performing ministerial duties, but not as an employee, do not count as earned income. Turbo tax 1040ez Examples include fees for performing marriages and honoraria for delivering speeches. Turbo tax 1040ez Form 4029. Turbo tax 1040ez   Whether or not you have an approved Form 4029, all wages, salaries, tips, and other taxable employee compensation count as earned income.

Turbo tax 1040ez Do not include any of these items in your earned income. Turbo tax 1040ez Earnings while an inmate. Turbo tax 1040ez   Amounts received for work performed while an inmate in a penal institution are not earned income when figuring the earned income credit.

Turbo tax 1040ez   Nontaxable workfare payments are not earned income for the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez These are cash payments certain people receive from a state or local agency that administers public assistance programs funded under the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program in return for certain work activities such as (1) work experience activities (including remodeling or repairing public housing) if sufficient private sector employment is not available, or (2) community service program activities. Turbo tax 1040ez Community property. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you are married, but qualify to file as head of household under special rules for married taxpayers living apart (see Rule 3), and live in a state that has community property laws, your earned income for the EIC does not include any amount earned by your spouse that is treated as belonging to you under those laws. Turbo tax 1040ez That amount is not earned income for the EIC, even though you must include it in your gross income on your income tax return. Turbo tax 1040ez Your earned income includes the entire amount you earned, even if part of it is treated as belonging to your spouse under your state's community property laws. Turbo tax 1040ez Nevada, Washington, and California domestic partners. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you are a registered domestic partner in Nevada, Washington, or California, the same rules apply. Turbo tax 1040ez Your earned income for the EIC does not include any amount earned by your partner. Turbo tax 1040ez Your earned income includes the entire amount you earned. Turbo tax 1040ez For details, see Publication 555. Turbo tax 1040ez Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) payments. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you were receiving social security retirement benefits or social security disability benefits at the time you received any CRP payments, your CRP payments are not earned income for the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Nontaxable military pay. Turbo tax 1040ez   Nontaxable pay for members of the Armed Forces is not considered earned income for the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Examples of nontaxable military pay are combat pay, the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH), and the Basic Allowance for Subsistence (BAS). Turbo tax 1040ez See Publication 3, Armed Forces' Tax Guide, for more information. Turbo tax 1040ez    Combat pay. Turbo tax 1040ez You can elect to include your nontaxable combat pay in earned income for the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez See Nontaxable combat pay in chapter 4. Turbo tax 1040ez Chapter 2—Rules If You Have a Qualifying Child If you have met all the rules in chapter 1, use this chapter to see if you have a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez This chapter discusses Rules 8 through 10. Turbo tax 1040ez You must meet all three of those rules, in addition to the rules in chapters 1 and 4, to qualify for the earned income credit with a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez You must file Form 1040 or Form 1040A to claim the EIC with a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez (You cannot file Form 1040EZ. Turbo tax 1040ez ) You also must complete Schedule EIC and attach it to your return. Turbo tax 1040ez If you meet all the rules in chapter 1 and this chapter, read chapter 4 to find out what to do next. Turbo tax 1040ez No qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you do not meet Rule 8, you do not have a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Read chapter 3 to find out if you can get the earned income credit without a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Rule 8—Your Child Must Meet the Relationship, Age, Residency, and Joint Return Tests Your child is a qualifying child if your child meets four tests. Turbo tax 1040ez The fours tests are: Relationship, Age, Residency, and Joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez The four tests are illustrated in Figure 1. Turbo tax 1040ez The paragraphs that follow contain more information about each test. Turbo tax 1040ez Relationship Test To be your qualifying child, a child must be your: Son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, or a descendant of any of them (for example, your grandchild), or Brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, stepsister, or a descendant of any of them (for example, your niece or nephew). Turbo tax 1040ez The following definitions clarify the relationship test. Turbo tax 1040ez Adopted child. Turbo tax 1040ez   An adopted child is always treated as your own child. Turbo tax 1040ez The term “adopted child” includes a child who was lawfully placed with you for legal adoption. Turbo tax 1040ez Foster child. Turbo tax 1040ez   For the EIC, a person is your foster child if the child is placed with you by an authorized placement agency or by judgment, decree, or other order of any court of competent jurisdiction. Turbo tax 1040ez (An authorized placement agency includes a state or local government agency. Turbo tax 1040ez It also includes a tax-exempt organization licensed by a state. Turbo tax 1040ez In addition, it includes an Indian tribal government or an organization authorized by an Indian tribal government to place Indian children. Turbo tax 1040ez ) Example. Turbo tax 1040ez Debbie, who is 12 years old, was placed in your care 2 years ago by an authorized agency responsible for placing children in foster homes. Turbo tax 1040ez Debbie is your foster child. Turbo tax 1040ez Figure 1. Turbo tax 1040ez Tests for Qualifying Child Please click here for the text description of the image. Turbo tax 1040ez Conditions for Qualifying Child Age Test Your child must be: Under age 19 at the end of 2013 and younger than you (or your spouse, if filing jointly), Under age 24 at the end of 2013, a student, and younger than you (or your spouse, if filing jointly, or Permanently and totally disabled at any time during 2013, regardless of age. Turbo tax 1040ez The following examples and definitions clarify the age test. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 1—child not under age 19. Turbo tax 1040ez Your son turned 19 on December 10. Turbo tax 1040ez Unless he was permanently and totally disabled or a student, he is not a qualifying child because, at the end of the year, he was not under age 19. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 2—child not younger than you or your spouse. Turbo tax 1040ez Your 23-year-old brother, who is a full-time student and unmarried, lives with you and your spouse. Turbo tax 1040ez He is not disabled. Turbo tax 1040ez Both you and your spouse are 21 years old, and you file a joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez Your brother is not your qualifying child because he is not younger than you or your spouse. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 3—child younger than your spouse but not younger than you. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 2 except that your spouse is 25 years old. Turbo tax 1040ez Because your brother is younger than your spouse, he is your qualifying child, even though he is not younger than you. Turbo tax 1040ez Student defined. Turbo tax 1040ez   To qualify as a student, your child must be, during some part of each of any 5 calendar months during the calendar year: A full-time student at a school that has a regular teaching staff, course of study, and regular student body at the school, or A student taking a full-time, on-farm training course given by a school described in (1), or a state, county, or local government. Turbo tax 1040ez   The 5 calendar months need not be consecutive. Turbo tax 1040ez   A full-time student is a student who is enrolled for the number of hours or courses the school considers to be full-time attendance. Turbo tax 1040ez School defined. Turbo tax 1040ez   A school can be an elementary school, junior or senior high school, college, university, or technical, trade, or mechanical school. Turbo tax 1040ez However, on-the-job training courses, correspondence schools, and schools offering courses only through the Internet do not count as schools for the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Vocational high school students. Turbo tax 1040ez   Students who work in co-op jobs in private industry as a part of a school's regular course of classroom and practical training are considered full-time students. Turbo tax 1040ez Permanently and totally disabled. Turbo tax 1040ez   Your child is permanently and totally disabled if both of the following apply. Turbo tax 1040ez He or she cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of a physical or mental condition. Turbo tax 1040ez A doctor determines the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for at least a year or can lead to death. Turbo tax 1040ez Residency Test Your child must have lived with you in the United States for more than half of 2013. Turbo tax 1040ez The following definitions clarify the residency test. Turbo tax 1040ez United States. Turbo tax 1040ez   This means the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Turbo tax 1040ez It does not include Puerto Rico or U. Turbo tax 1040ez S. Turbo tax 1040ez possessions such as Guam. Turbo tax 1040ez Homeless shelter. Turbo tax 1040ez   Your home can be any location where you regularly live. Turbo tax 1040ez You do not need a traditional home. Turbo tax 1040ez For example, if your child lived with you for more than half the year in one or more homeless shelters, your child meets the residency test. Turbo tax 1040ez Military personnel stationed outside the United States. Turbo tax 1040ez   U. Turbo tax 1040ez S. Turbo tax 1040ez military personnel stationed outside the United States on extended active duty are considered to live in the United States during that duty period for purposes of the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Extended active duty. Turbo tax 1040ez   Extended active duty means you are called or ordered to duty for an indefinite period or for a period of more than 90 days. Turbo tax 1040ez Once you begin serving your extended active duty, you are still considered to have been on extended active duty even if you do not serve more than 90 days. Turbo tax 1040ez Birth or death of child. Turbo tax 1040ez    child who was born or died in 2013 is treated as having lived with you for more than half of 2013 if your home was the child's home for more than half the time he or she was alive in 2013. Turbo tax 1040ez Temporary absences. Turbo tax 1040ez   Count time that you or your child is away from home on a temporary absence due to a special circumstance as time the child lived with you. Turbo tax 1040ez Examples of a special circumstance include illness, school attendance, business, vacation, military service, and detention in a juvenile facility. Turbo tax 1040ez Kidnapped child. Turbo tax 1040ez   A kidnapped child is treated as living with you for more than half of the year if the child lived with you for more than half the part of the year before the date of the kidnapping. Turbo tax 1040ez The child must be presumed by law enforcement authorities to have been kidnapped by someone who is not a member of your family or the child's family. Turbo tax 1040ez This treatment applies for all years until the child is returned. Turbo tax 1040ez However, the last year this treatment can apply is the earlier of: The year there is a determination that the child is dead, or The year the child would have reached age 18. Turbo tax 1040ez   If your qualifying child has been kidnapped and meets these requirements, enter “KC,” instead of a number, on line 6 of Schedule EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Joint Return Test To meet this test, the child cannot file a joint return for the year. Turbo tax 1040ez Exception. Turbo tax 1040ez   An exception to the joint return test applies if your child and his or her spouse file a joint return only to claim a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 1—child files joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez You supported your 18-year-old daughter, and she lived with you all year while her husband was in the Armed Forces. Turbo tax 1040ez He earned $25,000 for the year. Turbo tax 1040ez The couple files a joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez Because your daughter and her husband file a joint return, she is not your qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 2—child files joint return to get refund of tax withheld. Turbo tax 1040ez Your 18-year-old son and his 17-year-old wife had $800 of wages from part-time jobs and no other income. Turbo tax 1040ez They do not have a child. Turbo tax 1040ez Neither is required to file a tax return. Turbo tax 1040ez Taxes were taken out of their pay, so they file a joint return only to get a refund of the withheld taxes. Turbo tax 1040ez The exception to the joint return test applies, so your son may be your qualifying child if all the other tests are met. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 3—child files joint return to claim American opportunity credit. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 2 except no taxes were taken out of your son's pay. Turbo tax 1040ez He and his wife are not required to file a tax return, but they file a joint return to claim an American opportunity credit of $124 and get a refund of that amount. Turbo tax 1040ez Because claiming the American opportunity credit is their reason for filing the return, they are not filing it only to claim a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Turbo tax 1040ez The exception to the joint return test does not apply, so your son is not your qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Married child. Turbo tax 1040ez   Even if your child does not file a joint return, if your child was married at the end of the year, he or she cannot be your qualifying child unless: You can claim an exemption for the child, or The reason you cannot claim an exemption for the child is that you let the child's other parent claim the exemption under the Special rule for divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart) described later. Turbo tax 1040ez    Social security number. Turbo tax 1040ez Your qualifying child must have a valid social security number (SSN), unless the child was born and died in 2013 and you attach to your return a copy of the child's birth certificate, death certificate, or hospital records showing a live birth. Turbo tax 1040ez You cannot claim the EIC on the basis of a qualifying child if: The qualifying child's SSN is missing from your tax return or is incorrect, The qualifying child's social security card says “Not valid for employment” and was issued for use in getting a federally funded benefit, or Instead of an SSN, the qualifying child has: An individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), which is issued to a noncitizen who cannot get an SSN, or An adoption taxpayer identification number (ATIN), issued to adopting parents who cannot get an SSN for the child being adopted until the adoption is final. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you have more than one qualifying child and only one has a valid SSN, you can use only that child to claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez For more information about SSNs, see Rule 2. Turbo tax 1040ez Rule 9—Your Qualifying Child Cannot Be Used by More Than One Person To Claim the EIC Sometimes a child meets the tests to be a qualifying child of more than one person. Turbo tax 1040ez However, only one of these persons can actually treat the child as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Only that person can use the child as a qualifying child to take all of the following tax benefits (provided the person is eligible for each benefit). Turbo tax 1040ez The exemption for the child. Turbo tax 1040ez The child tax credit. Turbo tax 1040ez Head of household filing status. Turbo tax 1040ez The credit for child and dependent care expenses. Turbo tax 1040ez The exclusion for dependent care benefits. Turbo tax 1040ez The EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez The other person cannot take any of these benefits based on this qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez In other words, you and the other person cannot agree to divide these tax benefits between you. Turbo tax 1040ez The other person cannot take any of these tax benefits unless he or she has a different qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez The tiebreaker rules, which follow, explain who, if anyone, can claim the EIC when more than one person has the same qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez However, the tiebreaker rules do not apply if the other person is your spouse and you file a joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez Tiebreaker rules. Turbo tax 1040ez   To determine which person can treat the child as a qualifying child to claim the six tax benefits just listed, the following tiebreaker rules apply. Turbo tax 1040ez If only one of the persons is the child's parent, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the parent. Turbo tax 1040ez If the parents file a joint return together and can claim the child as a qualifying child, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the parents. Turbo tax 1040ez If the parents do not file a joint return together but both parents claim the child as a qualifying child, the IRS will treat the child as the qualifying child of the parent with whom the child lived for the longer period of time during the year. Turbo tax 1040ez If the child lived with each parent for the same amount of time, the IRS will treat the child as the qualifying child of the parent who had the higher adjusted gross income (AGI) for the year. Turbo tax 1040ez If no parent can claim the child as a qualifying child, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the person who had the highest AGI for the year. Turbo tax 1040ez If a parent can claim the child as a qualifying child but no parent does so claim the child, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the person who had the highest AGI for the year, but only if that person's AGI is higher than the highest AGI of any of the child's parents who can claim the child. Turbo tax 1040ez If the child's parents file a joint return with each other, this rule can be applied by treating the parents' total AGI as divided evenly between them. Turbo tax 1040ez See Example 8. Turbo tax 1040ez   Subject to these tiebreaker rules, you and the other person may be able to choose which of you claims the child as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez See Examples 1 through 13. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you cannot claim the EIC because your qualifying child is treated under the tiebreaker rules as the qualifying child of another person for 2013, you may be able to take the EIC using a different qualifying child, but you cannot take the EIC using the rules in chapter 3 for people who do not have a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez If the other person cannot claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you and someone else have the same qualifying child but the other person cannot claim the EIC because he or she is not eligible or his or her earned income or AGI is too high, you may be able to treat the child as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez See Examples 6 and 7. Turbo tax 1040ez But you cannot treat the child as a qualifying child to claim the EIC if the other person uses the child to claim any of the other six tax benefits listed earlier in this chapter. Turbo tax 1040ez Examples. Turbo tax 1040ez    The following examples may help you in determining whether you can claim the EIC when you and someone else have the same qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 1—child lived with parent and grandparent. Turbo tax 1040ez You and your 2-year-old son Jimmy lived with your mother all year. Turbo tax 1040ez You are 25 years old, unmarried, and your AGI is $9,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Your only income was $9,000 from a part-time job. Turbo tax 1040ez Your mother's only income was $20,000 from her job, and her AGI is $20,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Jimmy's father did not live with you or Jimmy. Turbo tax 1040ez The special rule explained later for divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart) does not apply. Turbo tax 1040ez Jimmy is a qualifying child of both you and your mother because he meets the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests for both you and your mother. Turbo tax 1040ez However, only one of you can treat him as a qualifying child to claim the EIC (and the other tax benefits listed earlier in this chapter for which that person qualifies). Turbo tax 1040ez He is not a qualifying child of anyone else, including his father. Turbo tax 1040ez If you do not claim Jimmy as a qualifying child for the EIC or any of the other tax benefits listed earlier, your mother can treat him as a qualifying child to claim the EIC (and any of the other tax benefits listed earlier for which she qualifies). Turbo tax 1040ez Example 2—parent has higher AGI than grandparent. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except your AGI is $25,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Because your mother's AGI is not higher than yours, she cannot claim Jimmy as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Only you can claim him. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 3—two persons claim same child. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you and your mother both claim Jimmy as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez In this case, you as the child's parent will be the only one allowed to claim Jimmy as a qualifying child for the EIC and the other tax benefits listed earlier for which you qualify. Turbo tax 1040ez The IRS will disallow your mother's claim to the EIC and any of the other tax benefits listed earlier unless she has another qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 4—qualifying children split between two persons. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you also have two other young children who are qualifying children of both you and your mother. Turbo tax 1040ez Only one of you can claim each child. Turbo tax 1040ez However, if your mother's AGI is higher than yours, you can allow your mother to claim one or more of the children. Turbo tax 1040ez For example, if you claim one child, your mother can claim the other two. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 5—taxpayer who is a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you are only 18 years old. Turbo tax 1040ez This means you are a qualifying child of your mother. Turbo tax 1040ez Because of Rule 10, discussed next, you cannot claim the EIC and cannot claim your son as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Only your mother may be able to treat Jimmy as a qualifying child to claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez If your mother meets all the other requirements for claiming the EIC and you do not claim Jimmy as a qualifying child for any of the other tax benefits listed earlier, your mother can claim both you and Jimmy as qualifying children for the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 6—grandparent with too much earned income to claim EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that your mother earned $50,000 from her job. Turbo tax 1040ez Because your mother's earned income is too high for her to claim the EIC, only you can claim the EIC using your son. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 7—parent with too much earned income to claim EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you earned $50,000 from your job and your AGI is $50,500. Turbo tax 1040ez Your earned income is too high for you to claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez But your mother cannot claim the EIC either, because her AGI is not higher than yours. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 8—child lived with both parents and grandparent. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you and Jimmy's father are married to each other, live with Jimmy and your mother, and have AGI of $30,000 on a joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez If you and your husband do not claim Jimmy as a qualifying child for the EIC or any of the other tax benefits listed earlier, your mother can claim him instead. Turbo tax 1040ez Even though the AGI on your joint return, $30,000, is more than your mother's AGI of $20,000, for this purpose half of the joint AGI can be treated as yours and half as your husband's. Turbo tax 1040ez In other words, each parent's AGI can be treated as $15,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 9—separated parents. Turbo tax 1040ez You, your husband, and your 10-year-old son Joey lived together until August 1, 2013, when your husband moved out of the household. Turbo tax 1040ez In August and September, Joey lived with you. Turbo tax 1040ez For the rest of the year, Joey lived with your husband, who is Joey's father. Turbo tax 1040ez Joey is a qualifying child of both you and your husband because he lived with each of you for more than half the year and because he met the relationship, age, and joint return tests for both of you. Turbo tax 1040ez At the end of the year, you and your husband still were not divorced, legally separated, or separated under a written separation agreement, so the Special rule for divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart) does not apply. Turbo tax 1040ez You and your husband will file separate returns. Turbo tax 1040ez Your husband agrees to let you treat Joey as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez This means, if your husband does not claim Joey as a qualifying child for any of the tax benefits listed earlier, you can claim him as a qualifying child for any tax benefit listed earlier for which you qualify. Turbo tax 1040ez However, your filing status is married filing separately, so you cannot claim the EIC or the credit for child and dependent care expenses. Turbo tax 1040ez See Rule 3. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 10—separated parents claim same child. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 9 except that you and your husband both claim Joey as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez In this case, only your husband will be allowed to treat Joey as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez This is because, during 2013, the boy lived with him longer than with you. Turbo tax 1040ez You cannot claim the EIC (either with or without a qualifying child). Turbo tax 1040ez However, your husband's filing status is married filing separately, so he cannot claim the EIC or the credit for child and dependent care expenses. Turbo tax 1040ez See Rule 3. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 11—unmarried parents. Turbo tax 1040ez You, your 5-year-old son, and your son's father lived together all year. Turbo tax 1040ez You and your son's father are not married. Turbo tax 1040ez Your son is a qualifying child of both you and his father because he meets the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests for both you and his father. Turbo tax 1040ez Your earned income and AGI are $12,000, and your son's father's earned income and AGI are $14,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Neither of you had any other income. Turbo tax 1040ez Your son's father agrees to let you treat the child as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez This means, if your son's father does not claim your son as a qualifying child for the EIC or any of the other tax benefits listed earlier, you can claim him as a qualifying child for the EIC and any of the other tax benefits listed earlier for which you qualify. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 12—unmarried parents claim same child. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 11 except that you and your son's father both claim your son as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez In this case, only your son's father will be allowed to treat your son as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez This is because his AGI, $14,000, is more than your AGI, $12,000. Turbo tax 1040ez You cannot claim the EIC (either with or without a qualifying child). Turbo tax 1040ez Example 13—child did not live with a parent. Turbo tax 1040ez You and your 7-year-old niece, your sister's child, lived with your mother all year. Turbo tax 1040ez You are 25 years old, and your AGI is $9,300. Turbo tax 1040ez Your only income was from a part-time job. Turbo tax 1040ez Your mother's AGI is $15,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Her only income was from her job. Turbo tax 1040ez Your niece's parents file jointly, have an AGI of less than $9,000, and do not live with you or their child. Turbo tax 1040ez Your niece is a qualifying child of both you and your mother because she meets the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests for both you and your mother. Turbo tax 1040ez However, only your mother can treat her as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez This is because your mother's AGI, $15,000, is more than your AGI, $9,300. Turbo tax 1040ez Special rule for divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart). Turbo tax 1040ez   A child will be treated as the qualifying child of his or her noncustodial parent (for purposes of claiming an exemption and the child tax credit, but not for the EIC) if all of the following statements are true. Turbo tax 1040ez The parents: Are divorced or legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance, Are separated under a written separation agreement, or Lived apart at all time during the last 6 months of 2013, whether or not they are or were married. Turbo tax 1040ez The child received over half of his or her support for the year from the parents. Turbo tax 1040ez The child is in the custody of one or both parents for more than half of 2013. Turbo tax 1040ez Either of the following statements is true. Turbo tax 1040ez The custodial parent signs Form 8332 or a substantially similar statement that he or she will not claim the child as a dependent for the year, and the noncustodial parent attaches the form or statement to his or her return. Turbo tax 1040ez If the divorce decree or separation agreement went into effect after 1984 and before 2009, the noncustodial parent may be able to attach certain pages from the decree or agreement instead of Form 8332. Turbo tax 1040ez A pre-1985 decree of divorce or separate maintenance or written separation agreement that applies to 2013 provides that the noncustodial parent can claim the child as a dependent, and the noncustodial parent provides at least $600 for support of the child during 2013. Turbo tax 1040ez For details, see Publication 501. Turbo tax 1040ez Also see Applying Rule 9 to divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart), next. Turbo tax 1040ez Applying Rule 9 to divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart). Turbo tax 1040ez   If a child is treated as the qualifying child of the noncustodial parent under the special rule just described for children of divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart), only the noncustodial parent can claim an exemption and the child tax credit for the child. Turbo tax 1040ez However, the custodial parent, if eligible, or another eligible taxpayer can claim the child as a qualifying child for the EIC and other tax benefits listed earlier in this chapter. Turbo tax 1040ez If the child is the qualifying child of more than one person for these benefits, then the tiebreaker rules determine which person can treat the child as a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 1. Turbo tax 1040ez You and your 5-year-old son lived all year with your mother, who paid the entire cost of keeping up the home. Turbo tax 1040ez Your AGI is $10,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Your mother’s AGI is $25,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Your son's father did not live with you or your son. Turbo tax 1040ez Under the Special rule for divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart), your son is treated as the qualifying child of his father, who can claim an exemption and the child tax credit for the child. Turbo tax 1040ez However, your son's father cannot claim your son as a qualifying child for head of household filing status, the credit for child and dependent care expenses, the exclusion for dependent care benefits, or the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez You and your mother did not have any child care expenses or dependent care benefits. Turbo tax 1040ez If you do not claim your son as a qualifying child, your mother can claim him as a qualifying child for the EIC and head of household filing status, if she qualifies for these tax benefits. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 2. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that your AGI is $25,000 and your mother's AGI is $21,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Your mother cannot claim your son as a qualifying child for any purpose because her AGI is not higher than yours. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 3. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you and your mother both claim your son as a qualifying child for the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Your mother also claims him as a qualifying child for head of household filing status. Turbo tax 1040ez You as the child's parent will be the only one allowed to claim your son as a qualifying child for the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez The IRS will disallow your mother's claim to the EIC and head of household filing status unless she has another qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Rule 10—You Cannot Be a Qualifying Child of Another Taxpayer You are a qualifying child of another taxpayer (your parent, guardian, foster parent, etc. Turbo tax 1040ez ) if all of the following statements are true. Turbo tax 1040ez You are that person's son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, or a descendant of any of them. Turbo tax 1040ez Or, you are that person's brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, stepsister, or a descendant of any of them. Turbo tax 1040ez You were: Under age 19 at the end of the year and younger than that person (or that person's spouse, if the person files jointly), Under age 24 at the end of the year, a student, and younger than that person (or that person's spouse, if the person files jointly), or Permanently and totally disabled, regardless of age. Turbo tax 1040ez You lived with that person in the United States for more than half of the year. Turbo tax 1040ez You are not filing a joint return for the year (or are filing a joint return only to claim a refund of withheld income tax or estimated tax paid). Turbo tax 1040ez For more details about the tests to be a qualifying child, see Rule 8. Turbo tax 1040ez If you are a qualifying child of another taxpayer, you cannot claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez This is true even if the person for whom you are a qualifying child does not claim the EIC or meet all of the rules to claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Put “No” beside line 64a (Form 1040) or line 38a (Form 1040A). Turbo tax 1040ez Example. Turbo tax 1040ez You and your daughter lived with your mother all year. Turbo tax 1040ez You are 22 years old, unmarried, and attended a trade school full time. Turbo tax 1040ez You had a part-time job and earned $5,700. Turbo tax 1040ez You had no other income. Turbo tax 1040ez Because you meet the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests, you are a qualifying child of your mother. Turbo tax 1040ez She can claim the EIC if she meets all the other requirements. Turbo tax 1040ez Because you are your mother's qualifying child, you cannot claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez This is so even if your mother cannot or does not claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Child of person not required to file a return. Turbo tax 1040ez   You are not the qualifying child of another taxpayer (and so may qualify to claim the EIC) if the person for whom you met the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests is not required to file an income tax return and either: Does not file an income tax return, or Files a return only to get a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 1—return not required. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in the last example except your mother had no gross income, is not required to file a 2013 tax return, and does not file a 2013 tax return. Turbo tax 1040ez As a result, you are not your mother's qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez You can claim the EIC if you meet all the other requirements to do so. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 2—return filed to get refund of tax withheld. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except your mother had wages of $1,500 and had income tax withheld from her wages. Turbo tax 1040ez She files a return only to get a refund of the income tax withheld and does not claim the EIC or any other tax credits or deductions. Turbo tax 1040ez As a result, you are not your mother's qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez You can claim the EIC if you meet all the other requirements to do so. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 3—return filed to get EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 2 except your mother claimed the EIC on her return. Turbo tax 1040ez Since she filed the return to get the EIC, she is not filing it only to get a refund of income tax withheld. Turbo tax 1040ez As a result, you are your mother's qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez You cannot claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Chapter 3—Rules If You Do Not Have a Qualifying Child Use this chapter if you do not have a qualifying child and have met all the rules in chapter 1. Turbo tax 1040ez This chapter discusses Rules 11 through 14. Turbo tax 1040ez You must meet all four of those rules, in addition to the rules in chapters 1 and 4, to qualify for the earned income credit without a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez You can file Form 1040, Form 1040A, or Form 1040EZ to claim the EIC without a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez If you meet all the rules in chapter 1 and this chapter, read chapter 4 to find out what to do next. Turbo tax 1040ez If you have a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you meet Rule 8, you have a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez If you meet Rule 8 and do not claim the EIC with a qualifying child, you cannot claim the EIC without a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Rule 11—You Must Be at Least Age 25 but Under Age 65 You must be at least age 25 but under age 65 at the end of 2013. Turbo tax 1040ez If you are married filing a joint return, either you or your spouse must be at least age 25 but under age 65 at the end of 2013. Turbo tax 1040ez It does not matter which spouse meets the age test, as long as one of the spouses does. Turbo tax 1040ez You meet the age test if you were born after December 31, 1948, and before January 2, 1989. Turbo tax 1040ez If you are married filing a joint return, you meet the age test if either you or your spouse was born after December 31, 1948, and before January 2, 1989. Turbo tax 1040ez If neither you nor your spouse meets the age test, you cannot claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Put “No” next to line 64a (Form 1040), line 38a (Form 1040A), or line 8a (Form 1040EZ). Turbo tax 1040ez Death of spouse. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you are filing a joint return with your spouse who died in 2013, you meet the age test if your spouse was at least age 25 but under age 65 at the time of death. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 1. Turbo tax 1040ez You are age 28 and unmarried. Turbo tax 1040ez You meet the age test. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 2—spouse meets age test. Turbo tax 1040ez You are married and filing a joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez You are age 23 and your spouse is age 27. Turbo tax 1040ez You meet the age test because your spouse is at least age 25 but under age 65. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 3—spouse dies in 2013. Turbo tax 1040ez You are married and filing a joint return with your spouse who died in August 2013. Turbo tax 1040ez You are age 67. Turbo tax 1040ez Your spouse would have become age 65 in November 2013. Turbo tax 1040ez Because your spouse was under age 65 when she died, you meet the age test. Turbo tax 1040ez Rule 12—You Cannot Be the Dependent of Another Person If you are not filing a joint return, you meet this rule if: You checked box 6a on Form 1040 or 1040A, or You did not check the “You” box on line 5 of Form 1040EZ, and you entered $10,000 on that line. Turbo tax 1040ez If you are filing a joint return, you meet this rule if: You checked both box 6a and box 6b on Form 1040 or 1040A, or You and your spouse did not check either the “You” box or the “Spouse” box on line 5 of Form 1040EZ, and you entered $20,000 on that line. Turbo tax 1040ez If you are not sure whether someone else can claim you as a dependent, get Publication 501 and read the rules for claiming a dependent. Turbo tax 1040ez If someone else can claim you as a dependent on his or her return, but does not, you still cannot claim the credit. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 1. Turbo tax 1040ez In 2013, you were age 25, single, and living at home with your parents. Turbo tax 1040ez You worked and were not a student. Turbo tax 1040ez You earned $7,500. Turbo tax 1040ez Your parents cannot claim you as a dependent. Turbo tax 1040ez When you file your return, you claim an exemption for yourself by not checking the You box on line 5 of your Form 1040EZ and by entering $10,000 on that line. Turbo tax 1040ez You meet this rule. Turbo tax 1040ez You can claim the EIC if you meet all the other requirements. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 2. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1, except that you earned $2,000. Turbo tax 1040ez Your parents can claim you as a dependent but decide not to. Turbo tax 1040ez You do not meet this rule. Turbo tax 1040ez You cannot claim the credit because your parents could have claimed you as a dependent. Turbo tax 1040ez Joint returns. Turbo tax 1040ez   You generally cannot be claimed as a dependent by another person if you are married and file a joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez   However, another person may be able to claim you as a dependent if you and your spouse file a joint return merely to claim a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Turbo tax 1040ez But neither you nor your spouse can be claimed as a dependent by another person if you claim the EIC on your joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 1—return filed to get refund of tax withheld. Turbo tax 1040ez You are 26 years old. Turbo tax 1040ez You and your wife live with your parents and had $800 of wages from part-time jobs and no other income. Turbo tax 1040ez Neither you nor your wife is required to file a tax return. Turbo tax 1040ez You do not have a child. Turbo tax 1040ez Taxes were taken out of your pay so you file a joint return only to get a refund of the withheld taxes. Turbo tax 1040ez Your parents are not disqualified from claiming an exemption for you just because you filed a joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez They can claim exemptions for you and your wife if all the other tests to do so are met. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 2—return filed to get EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1except no taxes were taken out of your pay. Turbo tax 1040ez Also, you and your wife are not required to file a tax return, but you file a joint return to claim an EIC of $63 and get a refund of that amount. Turbo tax 1040ez Because claiming the EIC is your reason for filing the return, you are not filing it only to claim a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Turbo tax 1040ez Your parents cannot claim an exemption for either you or your wife. Turbo tax 1040ez Rule 13—You Cannot Be a Qualifying Child of Another Taxpayer You are a qualifying child of another taxpayer (your parent, guardian, foster parent, etc. Turbo tax 1040ez ) if all of the following statements are true. Turbo tax 1040ez You are that person's son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, or a descendant of any of them. Turbo tax 1040ez Or, you are that person's brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, stepsister, or a descendant of any of them. Turbo tax 1040ez You were: Under age 19 at the end of the year and younger than that person (or that person's spouse, if the person files jointly), Under age 24 at the end of the year, a student, and younger than that person (or that person's spouse, if the person files jointly), or Permanently and totally disabled, regardless of age. Turbo tax 1040ez You lived with that person in the United States for more than half of the year. Turbo tax 1040ez You are not filing a joint return for the year (or are filing a joint return only to claim a refund of withheld income tax or estimated tax paid). Turbo tax 1040ez For more details about the tests to be a qualifying child, see Rule 8. Turbo tax 1040ez If you are a qualifying child of another taxpayer, you cannot claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez This is true even if the person for whom you are a qualifying child does not claim the EIC or meet all of the rules to claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Put “No” next to line 64a (Form 1040), line 38a (Form 1040A), or line 8a (Form 1040EZ). Turbo tax 1040ez Example. Turbo tax 1040ez You lived with your mother all year. Turbo tax 1040ez You are age 26, unmarried, and permanently and totally disabled. Turbo tax 1040ez Your only income was from a community center where you went three days a week to answer telephones. Turbo tax 1040ez You earned $5,000 for the year and provided more than half of your own support. Turbo tax 1040ez Because you meet the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests, you are a qualifying child of your mother for the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez She can claim the EIC if she meets all the other requirements. Turbo tax 1040ez Because you are a qualifying child of your mother, you cannot claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez This is so even if your mother cannot or does not claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Joint returns. Turbo tax 1040ez   You generally cannot be a qualifying child of another taxpayer if you are married and file a joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez   However, you may be a qualifying child of another taxpayer if you and your spouse file a joint return merely to claim a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Turbo tax 1040ez But neither you nor your spouse can be a qualifying child of another taxpayer if you claim the EIC on your joint return. Turbo tax 1040ez Child of person not required to file a return. Turbo tax 1040ez   You are not the qualifying child of another taxpayer (and so may qualify to claim the EIC) if the person for whom you meet the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests is not required to file an income tax return and either: Does not file an income tax return, or Files a return only to get a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 1—return not required. Turbo tax 1040ez You lived all year with your father. Turbo tax 1040ez You are 27 years old, unmarried, permanently and totally disabled, and earned $13,000. Turbo tax 1040ez You have no other income, no children, and provided more than half of your own support. Turbo tax 1040ez Your father had no gross income, is not required to file a 2013 tax return, and does not file a 2013 tax return. Turbo tax 1040ez As a result, you are not your father's qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez You can claim the EIC if you meet all the other requirements to do so. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 2—return filed to get refund of tax withheld. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 1 except your father had wages of $1,500 and had income tax withheld from his wages. Turbo tax 1040ez He files a return only to get a refund of the income tax withheld and does not claim the EIC or any other tax credits or deductions. Turbo tax 1040ez As a result, you are not your father's qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez You can claim the EIC if you meet all the other requirements to do so. Turbo tax 1040ez Example 3—return filed to get EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez The facts are the same as in Example 2 except your father claimed the EIC on his return. Turbo tax 1040ez Since he filed the return to get the EIC, he is not filing it only to get a refund of income tax withheld. Turbo tax 1040ez As a result, you are your father's qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez You cannot claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Rule 14—You Must Have Lived in the United States More Than Half of the Year Your home (and your spouse's, if filing a joint return) must have been in the United States for more than half the year. Turbo tax 1040ez If it was not, put “No” next to line 64a (Form 1040), line 38a (Form 1040A), or line 8a (Form 1040EZ). Turbo tax 1040ez United States. Turbo tax 1040ez   This means the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Turbo tax 1040ez It does not include Puerto Rico or U. Turbo tax 1040ez S. Turbo tax 1040ez possessions such as Guam. Turbo tax 1040ez Homeless shelter. Turbo tax 1040ez   Your home can be any location where you regularly live. Turbo tax 1040ez You do not need a traditional home. Turbo tax 1040ez If you lived in one or more homeless shelters in the United States for more than half the year, you meet this rule. Turbo tax 1040ez Military personnel stationed outside the United States. Turbo tax 1040ez   U. Turbo tax 1040ez S. Turbo tax 1040ez military personnel stationed outside the United States on extended active duty (defined in chapter 2) are considered to live in the United States during that duty period for purposes of the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Chapter 4—Figuring and Claiming the EIC You must meet one more rule to claim the EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez You need to know the amount of your earned income to see if you meet the rule in this chapter. Turbo tax 1040ez You also need to know that amount to figure your EIC. Turbo tax 1040ez Rule 15—Earned Income Limits Your earned income must be less than: $46,227 ($51,567 for married filing jointly) if you have three or more qualifying children, $43,038 ($48,378 for married filing jointly) if you have two qualifying children, $37,870 ($43,210 for married filing jointly) if you have one qualifying child, or $14,340 ($19,680 for married filing jointly) if you do not have a qualifying child. Turbo tax 1040ez Earned Income Earned income generally means wages, salaries, tips, other taxable employee pay, and net earnings from self-employment. Turbo tax 1040ez Employee pay is earned income only if it is taxable. Turbo tax 1040ez Nontaxable employee pay, such as certain dependent care benefits and adoption benefits, is not earned income. Turbo tax 1040ez But there is an exception for nontaxable combat pay, which you can choose to include in earned income. Turbo tax 1040ez Earned income is explained in detail in Rule 7 in chapter 1. Turbo tax 1040ez Figuring earned income. Turbo tax 1040ez   If you are self-employed, a statutory employee, or a member of the clergy or a church employee who files Schedule SE (Form 1040), you will figure your earned income when you fill out Part 4 of EIC Worksheet B in the Form 1040 instructions. Turbo tax 1040ez   Otherwise, figure your earned income by using the worksheet in Step 5 of the Form 1040 instructions for lines 64a and 64b or the Form 1040A instructions for lines 38a and 38b, or the worksheet in Step 2 of the Form 1040EZ instructions for lines 8a and 8b. Turbo tax 1040ez   When using one of those worksheets to figure your earned income, you will start with the amount on line 7 (Form 1040 or Form 1040A) or line 1 (Form 1040EZ). Turbo tax 1040ez You will then reduce that amount by any amount included on that line and described in the following list. Turbo tax 1040ez Scholarship or fellowship grants not reported on a Form W-2. Turbo tax 1040ez A scholarship or fellowship grant that was not reported to you on a Form W-2 is not considered earned income for the earned income credit. Turbo tax 1040ez Inmate's income. Turbo tax 1040ez Amounts received for work performed while an inmate in a penal institution are not earned income for the earned income credit. Turbo tax 1040ez This includes amounts received for work performed while in a work release program or while in a halfway house. Turbo tax 1040ez If you received any amount for work done while an inmate in a penal institution and that amount is included in the total on line 7 (Form 1040 or Form 1040A) or line 1 (Form 1040EZ), put “PRI” and the amount on the dotted line next to line 7 (Form 1040), in the space to the left of the entry space for line 7 (Form 1040A), or in the space to the left of line 1 (Form 1040EZ). Turbo tax 1040ez Pension or annuity from deferred compensation plans. Turbo tax 1040ez A pension or annuity from a nonqualified deferred compensation plan or a nongovernmental section 457 plan is not considered earned income for the earned income credit. Turbo tax 1040ez If you received such an amount and it was included in the total on line 7 (Form 1040 or Form 1040A) or line 1 (Form 1040EZ), put “DFC” and the amount on the dotted line next to line 7 (Form 1040), in the space to the left of the entry space for line 7 (Form 1040A), or in the space to the left of line 1 (Form 1040EZ). Turbo tax 1040ez This amount may be reported in box 11 of your Form W-2. Turbo tax 1040ez If you received such an amount but box 11 is blank, contact your employer for the amount received as a pension or an annuity. Turbo tax 1040ez Clergy.
