What age does earned income credit stop?

When someone is granted Earned-Income Credit, or EIC for short, that means they, either single or married, are part of the working low/moderate class and they receive a benefit from the government. This benefit is often seen as a tax break to those with financial needs, or those who are rewarded with always being on time with their taxes and meet other requirements. The EIC can also be considered the amount given back on a tax refund, with extra perks. In order to be eligible for the EIC, you must be at a minimum age of 25, but you cannot be over the maximum age of 65. If you are a working class individual, that gives you 40 years of potentially receiving tax breaks, and/or a nice tax refund from the IRS.
