When can I claim them?
I work two jobs as a 1099 employee—does that count?

Will my benefits (such as CalWorks, CalFresh, or disability) count as income? Will claiming EITC count as reportable income when I apply or renew benefits?

If I am DACA protected, am I eligible for the EITC?

I am a senior and meet the income threshold, do I qualify for the EITC?
Will I still qualify for this credit if I have any prior convictions on my record?
Should I file for the credit even if I have not filed my tax returns for many years and likely owe back taxes?
