Earned Income Tax Credits Audits

An Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) audit is an inquiry by the IRS to determine if a taxpayer rightfully claimed the EITC.  The EITC credit is available to individuals who worked during a tax year and earned wages or were self-employed.  To be able to claim this credit, certain requirements must be met. These types of audits usually only require that the taxpayer provide documentation confirming that they are eligible to claim the credit and are generally handled through the mail.
