I have a client (age 64) that qualifies for EIC based on her income. She files Single and does not have a qualifying child. Her income is less than $15,570 so she should qualify for EIC and, in fact, ProSeries calculates that she qualifies for $99. Her return gets rejected for no SCH EIC attached when the EIC value is not 0. I generate a SCH EIC, but the only information is her name and SSN since she has no dependent child. Apparently ProSeries is not attaching this schedule and the IRS requires it to accept the return. I feel like I am missing a check box somewhere that affirms she still qualifies, even without children. I think this may be the first return I have had where this is the case. Any help would be appreciated. T
Schedule EIC is NOT required if there are no children.
Is it an immediate reject ? If so, it is probably Intuit rejecting it. Or are you getting an IRS rejection notice? You might want to try disabling e-file checking when you e-file to see if that works (you need to e-file from Homebase in order to disable e-file checking).
If that still doesn't work, you may need to file by mail.
