Living in NJ and working in NYC


P

pattiec

I live in NJ and work part-time in NYC. I know I have to
file a NY tax return in addition to the federal return. My
question is: Am I eligible for the EIC? Is the EIC only
applicable to NY residents?

Thanks.

The EIC is a federal credit; you haven't given us nearly
enough information to judge if your are eligible. But you
need to be starving if you don't have kids. Then you only
need to be nearly starving.

EIC has nothing to do with what states you file in. I'm not
sure why you thought it did.

I guess my original question was unclear. I'm wondering if
the New York Earned Income Credit is only available to NY
residents, or if as a non-resident I still qualify. Sorry
for the confusion and thanks for any info on this.

EITC is a credit in the state filing based on the Fed EITC.
In NY I belive it is ~ 30% of the Fed amount. I would guess
it is only applicable in the resident state.

The NY EITC is available to nonresidents. It is limited to
the NY tax liability (including the supplemental tax
relating to tax table benefit recapture) reduced by the
household credit, credit for child and dependent care, and
excess deductions credit. N.Y. Tax Law Sec. 606(d)(3).

Just follow the form instructions.

New Jersey also has a state EITC, which is 20% of the
federal EITC amount. However, the state EITC is restricted
to workers claiming a child for the federal EITC who earn
less than $20,000.
