previous topic occurrence Advance Earned Income Credit (EIC) Payment next topic occurrence

An employee who is eligible for the earned income credit (EIC) and who has a qualifying child is entitled to receive EIC payments with his or her pay during the year. To get these payments, the employee must give you a properly completed Form W-5, Earned Income Credit Advance Payment Certificate. You are usually required to make advance EIC payments to employees who give you a properly completed Form W-5, but you do not have to make these payments to farmworkers paid on a daily basis.
The EIC payment is added to the employee's pay each payday. It is figured from tables in Publication 51 (Circular A). You reduce your liability for federal income tax withholding, social security tax, and Medicare tax by the total advance EIC payments made. For more information, see Publication 51 (Circular A).

You meet the notification requirement by giving each employee any of the following.
For more information about notification requirements and claiming the EIC, see
