    Yes, you can use Form 1040EZ, Income Tax Return for Single and Joint Filers With No Dependents, to claim the earned income credit (EIC), provided you don’t have a qualifying child and your investment income is $3,400 or less (for 2016). Your investment income is the total amount of interest from line 2 of Form 1040EZ and any tax-exempt interest.

    If you don’t meet the requirements for filing Form 1040EZ, you must use Form 1040A or Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return; but if your investment income is more than $3,400, you can’t claim the EIC.
