Claim the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)

  • Claim the 2018 federal EITC when you file your income taxes with a paid preparer, at free tax preparation site, or online for free through MyFreeTaxes.
  • If you didn't claim the EITC when you filed your taxes, you must file a PAPER amendment to your taxes called Form 1040X and mail it to the IRS. 

Questions?  If you file online with MyFreeTaxes, contact a tax expert (in English or Spanish) via the website's online chat or by phone at 855-698-9435, six days a week.
