Earned Income Credit EIC 2009
Notice to Employees of Federal
Earned Income Tax Credit (EIC)
If you make $40,000* or less,
your employer should notify you at the time of
hiring of the potential availability of Earned Income
Tax Credits or Advance Earned Income Credits.
Earned Income Tax Credits are reductions in
federal income tax liability for which you may
be eligible if you meet certain requirements.
Additional information and forms for these
programs can be obtained from your employer
or the Internal Revenue Service.
* 2009 income limits for eligibility are:
• $40,295 ($43,415 for married fi ling jointly)
with two or more qualifying children
• $35,463 ($38,583 for married fi ling jointly)
with one qualifying child
• $13,440 ($16,560 for married fi ling jointly)
with no qualifying children
You are eligible to get advance
Earned Income Credit (EIC) payments if
all four of the following apply:
1 You (and your spouse, if fi ling a joint return) have a
valid social security number (SSN) issued by the Social
Security Administration. For more information on valid
SSNs, see Pub. 596, Earned Income Credit (EIC).
2 You expect to have at least one qualifying child and to
be able to claim the credit using that child. If you do
not expect to have a qualifying child, you may still be
