How do I stop earned income tax credit from coming up in the California return? I deleted it. But when I tried to e-file, it's there again.

A W2 is considered earned income, even if it was PTO, she worked to get that money.

If their income qualifies them for CAEITC, it will continue to compute it, why are you not letting your clients have CAEITC?

Thanks, Lisa. Because my client retired in 2021 so he didn't actually work in 2022. But he received a very small W-2 from a PTO payout that didn't happen until the beginning of 2022. That's what triggered the EIC but I don't think he qualifies since he didn't work.
