STATE OF NEW JERSEY EIC FOR TAXPAYERS AGE BETWEEN 21-24

Level 3

This is new for the state of New Jersey.  My client is 22.  She is not eligible for federal EIC due to age, but NJ EIC allows her to claim the EIC because she falls in between the ages 21-24.  How can I get NJ program to enter that EIC amount?

Hi,  I tried one case of a 22 year old taxpayer and the NJ software calculated the EIC without qualifying for the Federal EITC. The NJ EIC was calculated automatically in Line 58. Maybe she went over the limits, I have to check the income limits, but I know that NJ lowered the age to 21 recently. Thank you.

Thank you for your help.  I removed the unemployment amount just to see and OF COURSE it worked.
