• Frustrated in Florida posted an update in the group Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) 2 years, 9 months ago

    Good morning! Has anyone ever had to amend a return for an Earned Income Credit they didn’t qualify for? My neighbor forgot to delete a dependent from her return after finding out she couldn’t claim her nephew, and by error transmitted the return and off it went without the deletion. The IRS told her to wait til she got her refund and then do an amendment. She did an amendment and send the money back. Will she get penalized for returning the money? She did it in Good Faith and returned it.
