From the book:
“A few years ago, I was surprised to learn that the earned income credit is not just for people with children. The worksheet calculation goes on for pages and looks complicated. But if you do exactly what the instructions say and don’t waste energy wondering why, it will work out. The EIC applies to anyone with earned income below a certain level. You can also just check the box for the IRS to compute it for you.”
