Advanced Earned Income Credit Will Not Be Available in
2011 For tax year 2011 and beyond, there will be no more advance payment of the
earned income tax credit. Eligible individuals will still be able to claim it on
their personal income tax returns, but employers may no longer advance a portion
of it with each paycheck. This change is a provision of HR 1586 (Public Law
111-226, Section 219), signed into law by President Obama on August 10.
