For some credits, the taxpayer needs to have a child to qualify for the credit. Is it a requirement to have a child to qualify for the Earned Income Credit?

No, you can qualify for the Earned Income Credit without a qualifying child if you meet the following requirements:

  • be age 25 but under 65 at the end of the year,
  • live in the United States for more than half the year, and
  • not qualify as a dependent of another person.
