District of Columbia 2011: Earned Income Credit (EIC)
The District of Columbia allows certain individual taxpayers an earned income credit equal to 40% of the amount claimed on their federal Forms 1040, 1040EZ or 1040A.
Certain customers, who filed a 2011 DC D-40 and who qualified for the earned income credit on their federal return, may have filed an incorrect District of Columbia tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
