If you think that you may qualify for the Earned income credit (Eic) this year and expect to have a qualifying Eic child with both earned and adjusted gross income under , 535 (single/head of household) or ,545 (married filing joint), you do not have to wait until tax time in order to receive a lump sum payment. You can elect to receive part of your credit over the procedure of the tax year on your paycheck through your employer. Of course, the advance that you received will be deducted from the total Earned income credit figured on next year's return. Bummer, I know. For those that are undaunted by this and are still curious in receiving a piece of the pie, here's what to do:
Secure Form W-5, Earned income credit advance cost Certificate from the Irs website, or by phone at 1-800-829-3676. If you have more than one employer, you must select which owner you wish to submit the W-5 form to. You are not allowed to have more than one W-5 form in follow at any one time. during the procedure of the year, if you contact any of the following, you will need to rescind or change your W-5 Form If you will no longer have a qualifying child, you will not be eligible for the Aeic. If you find that you will no longer qualify for Earned income Credit. You determine that you do not want advance payments any longer. If you are married and your spouse has also submitted a Form W-5.
With items a-c, check "no" on line 1 of your W-5 form. With item d, check "yes" on line 3.
If you receive Aeic, you will need to file a return and claim the amount received. Generally, this amount will appear in box 9 of your W-2 form. You are also required to file either Form 1040A or 1040, not Form 1040Ez. The Aeic is figured as an supplementary tax in conjunction with the tax that would already be due had you not received it. It is figured this way such that it is debited from the amount of Earned income credit that you would have received had you chosen not to receive any advance and as a debit in the case of individuals that collected these funds only to find that they were not entitled to them. In short, they must repay the advance.
Should you determine to get Aeic, according to Publication 15T, New Wage Withholding and Aeic cost Tables (old revision March 2009) pages 27-35, a single someone /head of household that is paid weekly with before tax income between 0 and 4 can have an supplementary a week in advance payments added to their paycheck. Similarly, a married filing joint private where only one of them has given the W-5 certificate to their owner can receive the same amount but can earn more, from 0 to 0. On the other hand, when both individuals have a W-5 certificate on file with their respective employers, the advance decreases to from earning between and 4 per week per person.
