#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Because qualified Medicaid waiver payments are excluded from your income, it’s not considered to be earned income for the purpose of the Earned Income Credit (EIC).
