Income Guidelines for the EIC

To be eligible for the EIC, you must fall within certain income guidelines. To qualify for the full amount of the EIC, your earned income and AGI must each be less than:

  • $8,110 ($13,540 if married filing jointly), if you don’t have a qualifying child for 2014
  • $17,830 ($23,260 if married filing jointly), if you have one or more qualifying children for 2014

If your earned income or AGI is above these limits, your EIC eligibility begins to phase out, and is eliminated completely when either amount reaches:

  • $14,590 ($20,020 if married filing jointly), if you don’t have a qualifying child for 2014
  • $38,511 ($43,941 if married filing jointly), if you have one qualifying child for 2014
  • $43,756 ($49,186 if married filing jointly), if you have two qualifying children for 2014
  • $46,997 ($52,427 if married filing jointly), if you have three or more qualifying children for 2014
