Can I claim the Earned Income Tax Credit on my net self-employment if I have my own business?


Net income from a Sole Proprietorship is earned income. The Earned Income Credit is available to taxpayers that meet certain income guidelines. See IRS Publication 596, Earned Income Credit, or Tax Credits for People Who Work.
